More Days, More Ways: New Voting System in 2020

By Brandi Orth, Fresno County Clerk/Registrar of Voters

The Voters Choice Act is an exciting new model for elections administration. California Senate Bill 450 was passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor in 2016, which authorizes counties to send every voter a mail ballot and provide ballot drop-off locations and Vote Centers throughout the County. In 2018, five counties successfully initiated the new law: Madera, Napa, Nevada, Sacramento and San Mateo.
