Did you know there’s a special election taking place in California? We’re calling on you to join us by voting in the California Gubernatorial Recall Election by September 14, 2021.

In the next few weeks, all active registered California voters will receive a ballot in the mail and asked to make their voice heard by casting a vote. It’s a simple and straightforward process:

  1. Vote by mail. Every active registered voter will get a mail-in ballot starting next week. You can make sure your registration is up to date so your ballot will come to the correct address. Visit https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov to verify your information.

  2. Vote early. Fill out and drop off your ballot as soon as you get it! Special elections typically have low voter turnout so we ask that you make voting a priority.

  3. Return your ballot. No postage is needed to return your ballot, just drop it in the mail or at a ballot drop box. Designated Drop-Ballot box locations can be found at https://caearlyvoting.sos.ca.gov.

If you’re not yet registered to vote, there’s no time like right now. And if you are 16 or 17 years old, or know a future voter, they can now pre-register to vote so that the moment they turn 18 they will be ready to vote. Go to https://registertovote.ca.gov and register today.

We are here to help you navigate voter registration and make sure your voice counts, so reach out if you need any additional support.

Thank you for joining us in being a voter in this upcoming election!
