Voter Information Guides on the way for November 7 Consolidated General Election
October 9, 2017
RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif – Approximately 104,000 County Voter Information Guides started going out to Riverside County voters last week for the consolidated general election on November 7. Material in the voter information guide will help voters make informed choices. Voters may mark their selections on the voter information guide and use it to help them complete their official ballot at the polls.
The Registrar of Voters recommends that voters review the materials before casting an official ballot. If voters do not receive an information guide in the mail, it will be available online at www.voteinfo.net. Voters also may call the registrar’s office at (951) 486-7200 or (800) 773-8683 to request a mailed copy.
The Nov. 7 consolidated general election is not a countywide election, so some areas of the county are not included in the election. Call the registrar’s office at (951) 486‐7200 if you have any questions about your eligibility to vote.
Voter polling-place locations are printed on the back cover of the information guide, which includes an application to request a vote-by-mail ballot. A Spanish-language version of the guide will be available at www.voteinfo.net and a copy can be mailed upon request.
Below is a list of important deadlines for the Nov. 7 election:
Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by elections officials no later than the close of the polls on Election Day or be postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than three days after Election Day to be counted.
