A number of voters have told me they are concerned about just leaving their completed ballot unattended in their mail box. That’s why many voters prefer to drop off their ballots either directly to the Post Office or drop it off at an official Riverside County Ballot Drop-Off Location. City Hall is an official Riverside County Ballot Drop-Off Location, making that an easy option to drop off your ballot during business hours in a safe and secure way.

California law also allows voters to have a family member or other trusted third party submit their ballot on their behalf.

When you sign up for “Where’s My Ballot?” you will receive automatic updates when the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office:
