California Voters Choice Act

Vote-by-Mail Ballots


Every Registered Voter in Fresno County, including the City of Kingsburg, will be delivered a ballot 28 days before Election Day.

Voters will have three ways to return their ballot:

1. Mail the ballot;
2. Drop the ballot in a secure county ballot drop box; or
3. Visit any vote center in the county.


Vote Centers


Traditional polling places will be replaced by vote centers. Voters will have the freedom to cast a ballot in-person at any vote center in their county instead of being tied to a single polling location. Vote centers look and feel like polling places, but provide additional modern features to make voting easy and convenient.

At any vote center in a participating county (Fresno County), a voter may:

1. Vote in-person
2. Drop off their ballot
3. Get a replacement ballot
4. Vote using an accessible voting machine
5. Get help and voting material in multiple languages
6. Register to vote or update their voter registration

Kingsburg's permanent Vote Center will be:
1465 California Street, Kingsburg CA 93631



The Vote Center will be open to the public for 4 days:
Saturday, February 29, 2020 9am-5pm
Sunday, March 1, 2020 9am-5pm
Monday, March 2, 2020 9am-5pm
Tuesday, March 3, 2020 7am-8pm (Election Day)
