Unsure how and where to submit your mail-in ballot for the Nov. 8 general election? You have options.

First, if you are mailing the ballot, make sure it is postmarked by Nov. 8. Additionally, mail it in time for the ballot to be received by your county election office no later than Nov. 11.

Here are other ways to get the ballot in:

▪ Drop it off at any polling place in your county from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

▪ Drop it off at your county elections office from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Election Day. A relative or person who lives in the same household can be authorized to do in-person delivery of mail-in ballots, according to information published on the secretary of state website.

Links to individual county election offices can be found on the California secretary of state website.

County election offices for the greater Sacramento region feature interactive tools to help voters find their polling places:

▪ El Dorado County

▪ Placer County

▪ Sacramento County

▪ Yolo County

Voters mailing their ballots should note the need for extra postage in some counties because this year’s ballots are larger, swelled by the numerous races as well as local and state measures.
