The Contra Costa Elections Division would like residents to know that our staff and volunteers are ready for Election Day. Early Voting Sites are open, and polling places will be open from 7 am until 8 pm on Election Day, June 7th. Voters are encouraged to return their ballots by mail, postmarked on or before Election Day, or drop their ballot off at one of the County’s 37 official drop boxes in order to avoid waiting in line.
"Vote by Mail is now the law moving forward in California, and it remains the easiest and fastest way to vote and return your ballot," said Clerk-Recorder-Registrar Debi Cooper, the County's top Elections Official. "All you need to do to cast your ballot is to return it by mail or put it into one of our official ballot boxes, located throughout the County. In-person voting will still be available, and we would like to remind voters that if they vote early, their vote will be included in the initial count on election night.”
