Online Sample Ballot Book Look-Up

online sample ballot

​You have a choice in how you receive your sample ballot booklet. Beginning January 1, 2011, state law (AB1717) allows voters to ‘go green' by choosing to opt out of receiving their sample ballot booklet by mail, and accessing it online instead.

Opt-Out / Opt-In Form

Use the online Sample Ballot Booklet - Opt-Out / Opt-In Form to request that mail delivery of your sample ballot booklet be stopped, or to restart mail delivery again if you previously had it stopped.

Please keep in mind that depending upon when you submit your form, your sample ballot booklet mailing for the upcoming election may already be in process. The option you select may not take effect until the next scheduled election. New sample ballot booklets are available online approximately 30 days before each election. You can find yours by using the the Sample Ballot and Polling Place Look Up below.

The law requires the county election official to confirm a voter's identity. The online form will require that you provide either your California driver's license or identification card number, or the last 4 digits of your social security number. This information is required on the online form to confirm your identity due to the absence of a signature. Any information provided by the voter will be kept confidential by the elections officials.

Receive Booklet via Mail

If you are currently receiving your sample ballot booklet by mail and you want to continue, you don't need to do anything. There's nothing you need to fill out. Your sample ballot will continue to be sent to you by mail.
