Ballots for the upcoming Nov. 8 General Election should arrive in Contra Costa County mailboxes beginning Oct. 11, according to the Contra Costa County Elections Office. 

Those who have not received their ballot by Oct. 20 should call the Elections Office at (925) 335-7800.

Not registered to vote yet? You can still register and vote in-person at a regional early vote site the Friday, Saturday, and Monday leading up to Election Day, at any polling place on Election Day, or at the Elections Division office in Martinez.  Your ballot will be processed and counted once the county elections office has verified your voter registration.  

All ballots must be turned in by 8 p.m. on Election Day or postmarked on Election Day and received by Nov. 15. Ballots can be dropped in USPS mailboxes, in one of the Elections Division’s 37 secure ballot drop boxes, at any voting location, or at the Elections Division. 

Earlier this week, Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder Debi Cooper reminded residents to check their voter registration to be sure the County has their most current address and correct information.

“The easiest and fastest way is to look up ‘My Voting Information’ on our website,” Cooper said. 

County officials warned voters to expect a large ballot — four pages front and back filled with local, county and state candidates, measures and propositions. 

The Secretary of State has begun sending out State Voter Information Guides, while Local Voter Information Guides were mailed out from the Contra Costa Elections Division on Sept. 27.
