The June primary has arrived and with it comes Santa Barbara County voters’ last chance to turn in their ballots. While most registered county voters should have received their mail-in ballot weeks ago, those who didn’t can still exercise their right. Here are three ways to vote today if you haven’t already:
1) Ballot Drop-Off: If you have your mail-in ballot, you can take it to any of the many ballot drop-off locations across the county. Visit the State of California’s Election & Voter Information site, enter your address using this polling place lookup tool, and head to that location by 8 p.m. While the lookup tool will provide your nearest polling place, you can drop off your ballot at any of the designated locations.
2) Voting Provisionally: If you’re registered to vote in the County of Santa Barbara but have either lost your mail-in ballot or never received it, use this polling place lookup tool to find your local polling place, and head there to vote in-person by 8 p.m. Again, the lookup tool will direct you to the polling place nearest you, but you can vote at any of the locations.
3) Voting Conditionally: If you still haven’t registered to vote, fear not. Conditional Voter Registration is a new safety net for folks who missed the registration deadline. Head to any one of the four county locations listed below before 8 p.m. to register and cast your ballot:
