At a Vote Center.
With the passage of the California Voter's Choice Act, traditional polling places will be replaced with Vote Centers that are open for up to 11 days, including Election Day. Any resident of Sacramento County can vote in-person at any Vote Center in the County. This means voters can choose when, where and how they want to vote. Vote early and avoid Election Day lines!
A complete list of locations can be found online here and will be provided in the Sacramento County Voter Information Guide that will be mailed out prior to the election.
What to Expect at a Vote Center
