New Voting System Implemented in Sacramento County

Changes are coming to the way Sacramento County voters will cast their ballots this year.  You'll notice the difference with the June 5th primary.

“Every registered voter in Sacramento County gets a ballot,” said Registrar of Voters Jill LaVine.  “If you’re interested, vote it and mail it back to us.”  

For those who'd rather vote in person, 78 regional vote centers will open in the days leading up to an election.

“For voters with disabilities, or voters who just enjoy using a touch screen, we have new interactive voting equipment,” Levine added.

Assistant Registrar Alice Jarboe says it's easy to use.

“We’ll program a data card,” she explained.  “It’ll show a ballot on the screen.  They can use their finger to mark the ballot.  It’ll print out a ballot that they’ll put in the ballot box there at the voting center.”

Voters can also return their ballot to one of 52 drop boxes set up around Sacramento County.
