In-person voting locations
Due to COVID-19, ballots have been mailed to all voters in the State of California.
In addition, in-person voting locations will be provided. Per the Governor's Executive Orders and new laws, counties can adopt a model of voting that requires in person voting locations based on the number of registered voters: 1/10,000 voters.
Any voter can go to any location.
The Santa Cruz County Clerk's office will be open for voting beginning Monday, October 4. This office will be open Monday - Friday during regular business hours. This location will also be open for the 4 days prior to the election.
