|Dear California Voter,
Tuesday, May 12, 2020 is the Special General Election to fill the vacancy in your State Senate district.
Note: You will be receiving your ballot in the mail in the coming days.
To ensure the safety of all voters and elections officials during the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring county elections officials to mail every registered voter a ballot for this election.
You are strongly encouraged to fill out your ballot at your earliest convenience and return it in the mail. There will only be limited in-person voting opportunities for voters who need assistance.
Returning Your Ballot
Your vote-by-mail ballot comes with a prepaid postage return envelope. Simply fill out your ballot, seal it in the return envelope, SIGN the back of the envelope on the designated line, and put it in the mail.

Your ballot must be postmarked on or before May 12. Ballots will be processed and counted as long as they are postmarked on or before May 12 and arrive to county elections officials no later than May 15.
