Are You Ready to Vote? 

California will hold a statewide primary election  on June 5, 2018. Voters will be selecting candidates for Congress and the state Legislature, along with local and statewide offices, such as Governor.

  • Check your county elections office to see which offices or ballot measures are up for a vote in your jurisdiction.
  • If you live in Santa Clara County and vote by mail, you can drop off your ballot at De Anza. Look for the official ballot drop-box next to the flagpole on the Main Quad.
  • The deadline to register was May 21. But you can still register "conditionally" any time through June 5 and cast a provisional ballot at your county elections office or a designated satellite location.
