A statewide primary election on June 7 will decide who will be on the ballot for the national midterms in November and important races in Solano County.

It’s easy to vote. Ballots for the election were mailed to all eligible voters in the county on May 9 and can be returned at any time by placing the ballot into the provided envelope and dropping it into any mailbox. No postage is necessary and ballots must be postmarked by June 7 in order to be counted.

June 7 election guide: Solano County DA, sheriff, supervisor seat on ballot
The elections for Solano County Sheriff and district attorney will select the two most powerful positions in the county’s criminal legal system for the next four years.

In addition to any mailbox, you can drop off your mail-in ballot at one of 14 secure drop boxes located throughout the county. Starting on June 2, there will also be 10 curbside drop-off locations, where you can stay in your car and hand your ballot to a poll worker.

Voters may also vote in person on June 7, although the county has taken steps recently to limit its locations for in-person voting by 30%. That includes reducing the number of polling places in Vallejo from 36 to 23.

But according to the county, more than 90% of voters in Solano County choose to return their ballot either by mail or at a drop-off location rather than voting in person.

Still, if you would feel more secure placing your ballot into a drop box or prefer to vote in person on election day, we’ve created this guide to help you find the closest location to you. You can also enter your address on the county’s website to find your polling location.
