Governor Newsom: All Californians will receive a mail-in ballot this November

CA Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order on Friday that will allow all registered voters to vote by mail in November. This action will not replace traditional polling places but will give Californians the choice to vote from the comforts of their home.

Newsom’s order comes after the governor received a letter from two lawmakers — Assemblyman Marc Berman, D-Menlo Park, and Sen. Tom Umberg, D-Garden Grove — calling on him to take executive action while they attempt to get a package of bills, which would codify the order in California law, passed through the Legislature.

Those bills include one that would require all registered voters receive a mail-in ballot, and another that would mandate that county elections officials open and maintain a minimum number of polling places and voting centers, where people can get assistance with voting if they need it.
