County Voter Information Guide
Mailed to Sacramento County Registered Voters

​The Voter Registration and Elections (VRE) Office has begun mailing the County Voter Information Guide (CVIG) for the November 3, 2020, Presidential General Election to Sacramento County registered voters. The VRE Office printed more than 800,000 Guides in English, Spanish and Chinese.

Registered voters can expect the CVIG to arrive in their mailboxes the last week of September. It will include Ballot Drop Box and Vote Center locations, local candidate statements, measures on the voter's ballot, and important dates and information. Voters that have 'opted out' of receiving a paper version of the CVIG may view it on the VRE website beginning October 5, 2020.
