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.

In Sonoma Valley and nearby communities, in-person locations include:

  • Berger Center in Oakmont, 310 White Oak Dr.
  • Moose Lodge in Sonoma, 20580 Broadway.
  • Finnish American Home Association, 197 W. Verano Ave., Sonoma.
  • Sonoma Veterans Memorial Building, 126 First Street West, Sonoma.
  • Sonoma County Fairgrounds, Kraft Hall, 1350 Bennett Valley Rd., Santa Rosa.
For a complete list of locations, go to: sonomacounty.ca.gov/CRA/Registrar-of-Voters/Elections/11-03-2020/Locations/.

In-person voting locations will be open a minimum of eight hours a day on Saturday, Oct. 31, Sunday, Nov. 1, and Monday Nov. 2, and will be open on election day, Nov. 3, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Secure ballot drop box locations (there are 20) will be open by Oct. 6, and open through election day, Nov. 3. Nearby locations include:

  • Glen Ellen Fire Station, 13445 Arnold Dr., Glen Ellen.
  • Kenwood Fire Station, 9045 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood.
  • Rincon Valley Library, 6959 Montecito Blvd., Santa Rosa.
