|Voting Options and Information for November 3, 2020|
In an effort to reduce the impact of the Coronavirus spread, the Solano County Registrar of Voters is preparing several voting options that voters should be aware of. Please check this site often as information will be updated closer to the election. Last updated May 5, 2020.
No Contact Voting:
As an option to in-person voting, all voters can vote without contact with our staff or office.
By Order of the Governor, all voters will be mailed a vote-by-mail ballot for the November 3, 2020 election. We encourage all voters to update their mailing address using this form (coming soon) Ballots will be automatically mailed at the end of September, and you can return the ballot through the USPS, or at multiple drop-off locations (coming soon) throughout the county. Your ballot packet will provide all the options for returning your vote by mail ballot. All postage is paid by the Registrar of Voters Office for voters mailing ballots back to our office. Voters do not have to vote this ballot, and can still choose to vote in-person using one of the options listed below. Other alternatives include:
Download a Ballot - print your ballot at home, and mail it, fax it, or drop it off at a drop-off location (coming soon). This service is available to any voter without a special request and can be used up to and including on election day provided the ballot is returned to us post-marked by election day, or at one of our drop-off locations (coming soon). Downloadable ballots are available starting the second week in September.
If you change your mind, you can still vote at your assigned polling place on Election Day.
Limited Contact Voting:
At your assigned poll places (link coming soon), all voters can request to vote "Curb-Side" from the comfort of your vehicle. Look for the blue cone outside of your polling place, and call the number listed on the cone. Pollworkers will come out to your car with your ballot and will securely deposit it for you.
This same curb-side option is available if you want to drop off your vote by mail ballot. It may be preferable for you to remain in your vehicle and we support that option.
Traditional poll place voting will be available in November. Your assigned location will be provided in the mail towards the end of September. Depending on health issues, the number of locations may need to be reduced in November, which may cause for additional time to vote. The Registrar anticipates requiring social distancing measures ensuring poll workers and voters stay 6'-0" apart. All poll workers will be provided with PPE including gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, wipes. Hand sanitizer will be available to all voters upon entering and leaving the polling place. We encourage all voters to wear masks as well to help protect our staff. Without our staff and volunteers we cannot successfully execute an election!
