California Gubernatorial Recall Election, September 14, 2021

The California Gubernatorial Recall Election will be held on September 14, 2021. For this election, we are required to send every active registered voter a ballot.

To confirm or review your registration, visit the Voter Information Lookup page for more information. The close of registration was August 30, 2021; however, you can still register and receive a ballot for this election, after this date, if you are not registered. You must complete the registration process in person, either at our office or at a polling place on Election Day.

NEW: We have moved the Hat Creek polling place to Burney, CA due to Dixie Fire evacuations. The new location is the Burney Veteran’s Hall, located at 37410 State Highway 299 E, Burney, CA 96013.  For more information, see the press release.

The last day to request a ballot be mailed to you was September 7, 2021. If you have questions on vote by mail voting, visit the Vote by Mail Voting page or call our office at 530-225-5730.

How to Vote a Recall Ballot

There are two steps to voting a recall ballot:
1. Mark your answer to the recall question.
2. Choose a candidate to serve for the remainder of the term.
Regardless of how you vote for the recall question, you
may still select a candidate to serve for the remainder of
the term, should the recall pass.
