Where's your Sacramento polling place for Super Tuesday? How to know where to vote

California's 2024 presidential primary election happened on Super Tuesday 2024. But, thanks to vote-by-mail ballots already being sent out, Sacramento residents can already start dropping off their ballots at certain polling places.

Some political analysts are predicting that California will see historically low voter turnout for this election. With President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump the clear frontrunners, experts are saying voters feel their vote will not make an impact. 

The state moved to a mostly vote-by-mail system during the COVID-19 pandemic, a change that aimed to boost voter turnout. 

How to find your polling location

Both the Secretary of State's office and Sacramento County have compiled a list of official polling places on easily searchable websites. 

The main thing to note is whether or not the polling place nearest you is an early voting center, election day voting site, or just a ballot drop-off location. With all Californians who were already registered to vote getting a mail-in ballot, the drop-off only locations aim to provide a convenient way for people to get their ballot in on time. However, people who need to register or reregister to vote, or to get a replacement ballot, will need to go to an election day voting site. 

Can you drop off your ballot anywhere in Sacramento?

If you're registered to vote in Sacramento County, you can drop off your ballot at any official ballot drop-off box or voting center in the county. 

Mailing your ballot comes with a bit of risk, as it will need to be postmarked on or before election day (March 5). Further, the ballot needs to get to the voter registrar's office within 7 days after the election in order for it to be counted.

Can you vote anywhere in Sacramento?

If you're a Sacramento County resident who works somewhere far away from where you live and aren't registered, the voter registrar's office says you don't need to go to the polling place closest to your home. As long as you're in Sacramento County, you can go to any polling place in the county and register to vote, get a provisional ballot, and then cast it. 

Does your polling place change automatically when you move?

Since California is mostly vote-by-mail, having a specific polling place doesn't matter as much anymore. Like detailed above, Sacramento County residents can go to any polling place in the county and vote. 

The important thing to note is whether or not the place you've been to in years past is still a polling place. Be sure to enter your address in Sacramento County's mapping tool to find the polling place nearest you.
