The City Clerk Department makes every effort to use the same polling places for each election. As noted above, sometimes it is not possible to keep the same polling place. Therefore, it is important that you check the back of your Sample Ballot Booklet for your polling place location.
In addition, Elections Code Section 18370 states that no person, on election day, or at any time that a voter may be casting a ballot, shall, within 100 feet of a polling place, or the elections official's office:(a) Circulate an initiative, referendum, recall, or nomination petition or any other petition.(b) Solicit a vote or speak to a voter on the subject of marking his or her ballot.(c) Place a sign relating to voters' qualifications or speak to a voter on the subject of his or her qualifications except as provided in Section 14240 (challenge of a voter).(d) Do any electioneering as described above.
As used in this section, "100 feet of a polling place, or an elections official's office" means a distance 100 feet from the room or rooms in which voters are signing the roster and casting ballots. Any person who violates any of the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor.
It is our goal to have all of our polling places accessible to the physically handicapped. If a voter cannot get inside the polling place, the voter may request to vote curbside. A poll worker will bring a ballot and marking device outside and assist the voter in casting a ballot. Please see California Elections Code Section 14282 for further information.
