The City of Calimesa is consolidating with the Riverside County Registrar of Voters for the 2020 General Municipal Election.  In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the County Registrar of Voters will be deploying a new election model for the upcoming November 3, 2020 General Election.  This will offer voters more ways and more days to vote safely.  Each eligible registered voter will receive a ballot by mail beginning Monday, October 5, 2020 in accordance with the Governors Executive Order.  Voters can verify their registration at https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov/ or register to vote at www.registertovote.ca.gov

Your Vote-By-Mail ballot may be returned to any secure ballot drop-off location beginning October 5, 2020 or via USPS (no postage required).  There will be a Drop-Off Ballot Box located at Calimesa City Hall at 908 Park Avenue, Calimesa, CA 92320 from 7:00 am - 5:30 pm Monday - Thursday.

The Registrar of Voters will be operating a "Voter Assistance Center" at the Calimesa Norton Younglove Senior Center, 908 Park Avenue, Calimesa, CA 92320.  You can vote in-person at this location from October 31, 2020 - November 3, 2020.  The Registrar of Voters recommends that voters only use the in-person "Voter Assistance Center" if absolutely necessary, as the generalized use of in-person voting presents risks to public health and safety in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Social distancing will be required when visiting a Voter Assistance Center and face coverings are strongly encouraged.  Please feel free to contact the Riverside County Registrar of Voters at (951) 486-7200 with any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming November 3, 2020 General Election.
