Here’s an update on what’s going on with the 2012 Elections.

Local Information

  • Vote by Mail ballots will be arriving in mailboxes this week, and voters will notice that the ballot cards are longer this election, according to a press release issued by Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections. With two 19-inch ballot cards, the General Election’s Vote by Mail return envelope will weigh slightly more than one ounce and will require 65 cents postage to mail. Voters living within the City of Sacramento boundaries will receive three 19-inch ballot cards this November due to the number and size of City contests on the ballot. Postage on these return envelopes will also be 65 cents.
  • This week Sacramento County Voters can also drop off their vote by mail ballot at any of the 14 drop-off locations throughout the County. Please visit for locations and hours. Voters can also drop off their Vote by Mail ballot at any polling place in their county on Election Day.
