On March 16, 2021, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved transitioning Sonoma County from a polling place election model to the Voter’s Choice Act election model. What does this mean?
First, it means all active, registered voters in Sonoma County will automatically be mailed a ballot for every election in which they are eligible to participate. No need to check a box or fill out a form each election!
Second, it means continuing to offer extensive in-person voting opportunities for those who prefer to vote that way -- except now the voting locations will be open multiple days and voters can go to any location in the County they choose and still receive receive the correct ballot!
In short, Sonoma County voters will have more flexibility in choosing how, when, and where to cast their ballots!
