Did you know:


Your right to vote was hard won. Exercise your franchise and vote if you are:

  • A citizen of the United States
  • At least 18 years old on election day
  • Registered to vote in Santa Cruz County


Vote in person:
Polls are open from 7am to 8pm. Find your polling place.

Vote by mail:
No postage is required, but ballots must be signed and postmarked by election day. You can also drop off your signed mail-in ballot for Santa Cruz County in the drop box outside Bay Tree Bookstore or at any of these convenient locations for ballot drop-off no later than 8pm on election day.

Not registered?
If you didn’t register by the October 22nd deadline, it is not too late. California has a same-day registration process. You can register and cast a conditional ballot at:

  • UCSC Bay Tree Conference Center Quarry Plaza
  • Santa Cruz County Elections Office, 701 Ocean St., Room 310
