Voting FAQs

How do I register to vote?
The easiest way to register is on the Secretary of State’s website. You’ll need a driver’s license or state ID card, birth date, and Social Security Number. You can also register in person at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters office in downtown Oakland. The deadline is Oct. 24, but you can also register on the same day you vote if you go to an in-person voting center.

Where’s my ballot?
All registered Alameda County voters will be sent a ballot in the mail. You can track your ballot using this website. You can use the same website to track your ballot once you’ve mailed it or dropped it off.

Where do I vote?
By mail: You can mail your ballot back to the registrar using its pre-paid postage. To count, it must be postmarked on or before Election Day.

Drop it off: Here’s a map of all the dropboxes in Alameda County. You can do this on or before Nov. 8.

In person: If you prefer to cast your vote in person, you can do so at any of the 100 voting centers in Alameda County. So Oakland residents who work in Fremont can choose to vote at a center there if that’s easier.
