What Is the Voter’s Choice Act?
The Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) is a law that allows counties to offer voters more choices for how, when, and where they vote. Under the VCA, all active registered voters are automatically mailed a ballot, early voting is expanded for more days, and voters may vote in-person at any regional vote center. Marin County first implemented the Voter’s Choice Act during the June 7, 2022 primary election.
How Does It Work?
All active registered voters are automatically mailed a ballot and have three ways to return it:
(No stamp needed!)
- By mail
- At an official ballot drop box
- At a vote center
What Is a Vote Center?
Voters may vote in-person at any vote center in Marin County. Assigned, neighborhood polling places are replaced by regional vote centers that open at least 3 days before Election Day with more services:
- Register to vote & vote the same day
- Replace a lost or damaged ballot
- Early voting—vote before Election Day!
- Vote with an accessible voting machine
- Request help
