NEW Now all Californians can Same-Day Register (or re-register), change their political party, and vote with a provisional ballot at every voting location in your county.

If you’re registered as No Party Preference (NPP) but you want to vote for president in the American Independent, Democratic, or Libertarian Party, then here are your options:

Vote-by-Mail

  • Apply for a vote-by-mail ballot before February 18, 2020. Download, print and fill out the application.
  • Mark box #7 and write in the name of the party on the application.
  • Mail the application directly to your county elections office.

    -OR-

  • Go to your county elections office or a Vote Center (if your county has them) to request a vote-by-mail ballot.

  • Cast your new vote-by-mail ballot as you would any other vote-by mail ballot.
  • Note: Return the new vote-by-mail ballot in the envelope that came with the new ballot. Do not use the old ballot or the old envelope. The old ballot is void and will not be counted. A new ballot in an old envelope will also not be counted.

Early In-Person Voting

  • Go to your county elections office or a vote Center (if your county has them) before March 3.
  • Request the ballot of the party you wish to vote in.
  • Note: If you have a vote-by-mail ballot take it and its return envelope with you to give it to the elections officials. If you do not bring the old ballot and envelope, you will receive a provisional ballot that will be counted after it is confirmed that your old ballot was not cast.

At the Polls on Election Day, March 3, 2020

  • Go to your polling place or your county elections office.
  • Request the ballot of the party you wish to vote in.
  • Note: If you have a vote-by-mail ballot take it and its return envelope with you to give it to the elections officials. If you do not bring the old ballot and envelope, you will receive a provisional ballot that will be counted after it is confirmed that your old ballot was not cast.

If you re-registered after you received a vote-by-mail ballot:

  • If you re-registered after receiving a vote-by-mail ballot, and you asked for vote-by-mail status during the re-registration, then a new vote-by-mail ballot will be mailed to you.
  • Return the new vote-by-mail ballot in the envelope that came with the new ballot. Do not use the old ballot or the old envelope. The old ballot is void and will not be counted. A new ballot in an old envelope will also not be counted.
  • Mail your ballot. Be sure it is postmarked on or before March 3, 2020.
    -OR-
  • Drop off your vote-by-mail ballot in person on Election Day at any polling place in your county or your county elections office.
