The California Primary Election is June 7, 2022: Are You Ready to Vote?

When we use our voices, we can build a more just world. Voting is one of the most effective ways to make our voices heard. We’re here to help ensure that KIPP SoCal students, teachers, and team members are registered and ready to vote in the local and state elections in 2022. Below is a three step guide to help you prepare to vote. 

Step 1: Register to Vote

If it’s your first time registering, or you’re making sure your current info is up-to-date, it takes less than two minutes to complete your registration.

Step 2: Create a Voter Plan

How will you vote in this election? Making a plan for how you'll cast your ballot is essential. And with the California Voter's Choice Act, you have more days and more ways to vote!  In California, you will automatically receive a ballot before every election and you have three options:

  • Vote By Mail: Return your ballot as soon as you receive it!
  • Use a drop box: Return your ballot to a secure drop off location up to 28 days before the election, drop boxes open May 10.
  • Vote In-Person:
    • Vote in person anywhere in the county up to 10 days before the election
    • Register to vote and vote the same day. Polls are open 7:00 am - 8:00 pm on Election Day!
    • Drop off your ballot.

All registered voters in the state of California will be mailed a Vote By Mail ballot to ensure a safe and accessible voting option in the Primary Election. County elections officials will begin mailing vote-by-mail ballots on or before May 9, and will include a ballot card, a return envelope, a list of Vote By Mail Drop Box locations, and an "I Voted" sticker.

To request a Multilingual Ballot in Los Angeles County (available in 12 languages including Spanish), please call (800) 815-2666, option 3.

Returning Your Vote By Mail Ballot

  • Return By Mail: must be postmarked by Election Day, June 7, with no postage required. Because of USPS delays, it is recommended to mail your ballot at least two weeks in advance to ensure proper delivery. 
  • Voters must sign the eligibility oath and date the Vote By Mail return envelope before submitting their ballot. Every signature is verified before the ballot is cleared for counting. If a signature is missing or if the signature does not match the one on file, the County will notify the impacted voter to allow the voter an opportunity to provide a valid signature.
  • Drop-Off at Dropbox Location
  • Drop-Off at Voting Center

Safe and accessible in-person voting options are available.
