Voting Begins Now for March 5 Primary Election!

Dear OCEA member,

THIS WEEK IS THE BIG WEEK—BALLOTS ARRIVE IN THE MAIL! The Orange County Registrar of Voters has mailed ballots for the March 5 Primary Election! Starting tomorrow, Feb. 6, drop off locations will also be open.

As a reminder, vote-by-mail ballots can be returned by mail, at the drop-off location, or to the OC Registrar of Voters. Vote centers will also open for early in-person voting beginning Feb. 24. Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by March 12 to be counted.

More election information can be found here: California Secretary of State | Orange County Registrar of Voters | LA County Registrar of Voters | Riverside County Registrar of Voters

The politicians we elect to office make decisions that impact our contracts, our budgets, and our working conditions. We respect and understand that every OCEA member brings their personal values into the voting booth. It is our job as your union to let you know which candidates, initiatives, and causes have a direct impact on our ability to negotiate fair contracts for you and other members.
