In less than two months, thousands of Sacramento County voters will cast ballots for the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election.

Last week, the 808,353 registered Sacramento County voters should have received postcards in the mail showing the voter’s name, address and registered political party.

It’s an important piece of paper that can help make sure your voter record is accurate to avoid any problems when you vote.

Here are three things you need to know about the primary election in Sacramento County:

1) Why is the postcard I received in the mail important?

The Voter Registration Status postcard is a copy of the record currently held by the Sacramento County Elections office.

If your information is correct, you don’t need to act.

However, if any information on the card is inaccurate, contact the elections office immediately at (916) 875-6451.

2) What does “No Party Preference” mean?

If you are not registered with a political party, also known as No Party Preference, you will receive a ballot that does not contain any presidential nominees.

In California, the Democratic Party is open to all voters, but voters registered as No Party Preference must request a crossover ballot to participate. For the Republican Party, those supporting President Donald Trump or another candidate, must be registered as Republicans because that primary is closed to only members of the GOP.

Voters can also make changes to their party registration by going to the Secretary of State’s voter registration website.

3) What are my options to vote in Sacramento County?

Voters may cast a ballot by mail, at a vote center or by using a ballot drop box.

Mail-in ballots will be sent out during the first week of February.

Ballot-drop mailboxes will be available on Feb. 4.

Sacramento County will open 18 vote centers on Feb. 22. All 84 vote centers will open across the county on Feb. 29.

At the vote centers, Sacramento County residents will able to drop off their mail-in ballots or fill out their ballots.
