Three ways to cast a ballot this Presidential General Election

Voting will be different this year to accommodate for social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Vote by mail ballots were mailed between October 5 and October 9 to all registered voters in California. There are three ways for voters to return ballots this year: through the mail, at a drop off-site, or at a voter assistance center.   

Ballots can be returned through the U.S. Postal Service mail system in the pre-paid envelope provided with the ballot. Envelopes must be signed by the voter. All ballots postmarked on or before November 3 and received up to 17 days after the election will be counted.

Ballots may be returned at any one of the 80 ballot drop off locations, including specific city halls, libraries, and community centers. These drop off locations are already accepting ballots throughout Riverside County.

Voters who require in-person assistance with their ballot, such as a need for a replacement ballot or to use the ballot marking machine, they may visit an in-person voter assistance center between October 31 and November 3. Unlike polling places, voters are not assigned to a specific location and may visit any one of the 130 voter assistance centers. For a list of all voter assistance centers in Riverside County, visit
