We encourage in-person polling where possible (SAFELY, please!), but we’d like to note that the regular neighborhood polling places will likely again (like 2020) not be implemented this election, so you may need to travel further than you are used to! There will also again likely be fewer polling places than usual. Be prepared, find a polling place on the AC Vote website.
We are looking for free and cheap ways to transport voters to the polls! If you have more suggestions, please let us know!
You will need to go to one of the polling places and tell them you need to vote provisionally because your ballot was lost in the mail. We anticipate this may happen to many voters. You should get a stub, which is essentially a receipt, from the ballot they give you to fill out–you can use that to look up when your ballot was counted.
As with previous years, Alameda County allows curbside voting for those unable to enter the polling place, and as required by law offer accessible voting booths. For more info on accessible voting, check out the AC vote website.
