How to Vote in this Election

Though this is a primary, this election will determine your next Shasta County District 4 Supervisor. For county races, if someone gets over 50% of the vote in the primary, there is no general election. Since only 2 candidates are running, one of us will get over 50%.

There are 4 ways to vote in this election, according to the Shasta County Clerk’s Office:

  1. In person at the elections office:  You may vote in person at the Elections Office (1643 Market Street, Redding)
    • Monday – Friday, February 5th – March 5th from 8am – 5pm
    • Saturday, March 2nd from 9am – 3pm
    • Tuesday, March 5th, Election Day from 7am – 8pm
  2. In person at a polling place: Polling places are open from 7am – 8pm on Election
    Day.

    • Bring your ballot from home or ask a poll worker for a ballot.
    • You can find your polling location at this County website.
  3. By mail: You can drop your ballot envelope into any USPS mail
    box.

    • If mailed, your ballot must be postmarked by March 5th. A postmark indicates the date and location the Postal Service accepted custody of a piece of mail. If you need to obtain a postmark on Election Day, you must visit a post office in person during their operating hours.
    • The County must receive all postmarked ballot envelopes by March 12th.
  4. By drop box: Official Shasta County Elections Office Drop Boxes are open February 5th – March 5th. Drop boxes are emptied regularly by election staff.
