Vote-by-Mail Ballot mailing period

The first March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election ballots may go out to California’s military and overseas voters as early as Jan. 3. Counties begin mailing vote-by-mail ballots on Feb. 3. The last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot by mail is Feb. 25.

 

Voters registered with No Party Preference

Californians who are registered to vote with No Party Preference may request an American Independent Party, Democratic Party, or Libertarian Party presidential primary ballot. This is a process known as “crossover voting.” If a No Party Preference voter does not request a crossover ballot, they will receive a primary election ballot without any presidential candidates listed. No Party Preference voters who vote in person may simply request their desired crossover ballot when checking in at the polls.

No Party Preference voters who vote by mail will receive a postcard from their county elections official in advance that will allow them to select an American Independent Party, Democratic Party, or Libertarian Party ballot. A No Party Preference voter may simply select which party’s ballot they would like to vote for and return the postcard by mail. These postcards will be sent in advance of vote-by-mail ballots being sent out.

No Party Preference voters who do not respond to this postcard will be mailed a ballot without any presidential candidates listed. If this happens, they are still able to request a crossover ballot from their county elections official via phone, email and fax.

Voters can also take their non-partisan vote-by-mail ballot to their polling place (or any vote center in a Voters’ Choice Act County) and exchange it for a ballot with presidential candidates from the American Independent, Democratic, or Libertarian Party.

 

Voters registered with a political party

Voters registered with a political party can only vote for that party’s presidential candidates in a primary election. These voters must re-register to vote if they wish to vote in another party’s presidential primary election.
