CalPERS Ballot: Call for Replacement If Yours Hasn't Arrived

Requesting a Replacement Ballot

If you haven't received your CalPERS runoff ballot, contact CalPERS now for a replacement. Call the Board Elections Office at (916) 795-3952 or (800) 794-2297.

Ballots were mailed November 9.

Make Sure Your Vote Is Counted

Ballots must be postmarked by December 4. Follow all voting instructions, including signing the reverse side of the envelope before mailing, to make sure your vote is counted.

In the previous vote, over 5,000 ballots went uncounted for reasons including late postmarks, missing signatures, and improperly marked ballot cards. Ballots will be counted on December 7 (so we don't actually recommend waiting until December 4 to mail yours).
