Vote By Mail Ballots For November 8th Election Now In Mail On Central, South Coasts


Election Day is still almost a month away, but hundreds of thousands of voters on the Central and South Coasts will be able to cast their ballots starting this week.

Vote by mail ballots went into the mail this week. In Santa Barbara County alone, more than 138,000 ballots are now in the mail.

If you’re using a vote by mail ballot, it must be postmarked by Election Day, November 8th for it to count. You can also turn it in at any polling place on Election Day.
