You should have your ballot by now
Sonoma County Registrar of Voters mailed out ballots on Oct. 5.
In the event that a voter never receives their ballot or needs a replacement, the last day to request a ballot be mailed to them is Oct. 27. After Oct. 27, requests for Vote-by-Mail ballots must be made in person at the Registrar of Voters office.
You can drop off the ballot that was mailed at any of 30 in-person locations, or choose to vote with a ballot that is issued at an in-person location. And anyone can go to any in-person location. If you choose to vote in-person, as opposed to drop off, Registrar workers will look you up in their system, verify you have not already cast a vote, void any ballots already issued or mailed to you, and issue and print you a new ballot.

- Berger Center in Oakmont, 310 White Oak Dr.
