Dear California Voter,
If you have already returned your vote-by-mail ballot for California’s Recall Election, thank you for being a voter and helping keep your community safe!
If you haven’t returned your ballot yet, you have until September 14 to do so, but you don’t need to wait until then to vote. Returning your ballot now lets you skip the line and keep voting locations safe for those who need them on Election Day!
Your ballot asks whether or not you want to remove California Governor Gavin Newsom from office, and allows you to select a candidate who could replace him if a majority of California voters support the recall. You can choose yes or no on the recall, and still cast a vote for a replacement candidate.
You have multiple safe, secure, and reliable options for returning your ballot:
Mail – Your ballot includes a prepaid, first class postage return envelope that you can use to mail your ballot back – no stamp needed! To ensure your ballot arrives on time, we recommend you mail it as soon as possible.

In-person – One or more voting locations will be open in many counties before Election Day for you to safely vote in-person, drop off your completed ballot, or get a replacement ballot. On Election Day, September 14, vote centers will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Returning your ballot before September 14 will help ensure safe physical distancing at vote centers.

Please allow several days after returning your vote-by-mail ballot for your county elections office to process it.
Together, we can ensure a safe and secure election for everyone!
California Secretary of State
