Senate Bill 450, the California Voter's Choice Act (VCA)

Pursuant to Senate Bill 450, the California Voter's Choice Act, authorized Fourteen Counties, including San Mateo, to conduct any election as an All Mailed Ballot/ Vote Center Election, commencing January 2018. 
San Mateo County is one of five counties in the State that will be conducting the November 6, 2018 Statewide General Election under this new law.

East Palo Alto residents will be able to vote:
Vote Mail Ballots - all registered voters will be mailed a ballot beginning 29 days before the election, with a postage paid envelope to return the ballot.  You may call the County to request a Ballot in a language other than English.
Voters with disabilities, overseas voters, military personnel and military spouses may choose to vote through the San Mateo County's Accessible Vote by Mail System that allows qualified voters access and mark their ballot in a screen-readable format on a personal computer.

  • Should a person, due to their disability, not be able to go to a Vote Center for a replacement ballot, they may request the County to deliver a Ballot to their home or have an electronic voting machine brought to their home. They may also use their personal computer to download and mark their ballot through the Accessible Vote by Mail System.
  • A registered voter may call, email or fax to receive a replacement ballot up till 1-week  prior to Election Day. 
  • A replacement ballot can be obtained at a Vote Center during the final week prior to the election.
