Voter registration forms can be obtained at the City Clerk’s Office, the Contra Costa County Election Division, online through the California Secretary of State or by calling the City Clerk’s Office (925) 314-3401) to have a form mailed to you. Only registered voters can request a vote by mail ballot.
For those that wish to vote by mail, the deadline to submit a request for a vote by mail ballot is Tuesday, May 29 at 5 p.m.
