California Voter’s Choice Act June 2018 Primary Election Report
Signed into law in 2016, the California Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) is a new elections model that was introduced in five counties during the June 2018 primary election. This major election reform allows counties to conduct elections under a new model that expands early voting and ballot return methods. Designed to provide greater flexibility and convenience for voters, this new election model allows voters to choose how, when, and where to cast their ballot. Under the VCA, each voter is mailed a ballot, which they can then return by mail, to a secure drop box, or to a vote center. Voters are also allowed to cast a ballot at any vote center within their county, or through other expanded in-person early voting options.
