(Impact on elections)
California Executive Order N-64-20 requires that each county’s elections official send vote-by-mail ballots for the November 3, 2020 General Election to all registered voters. Californians who may need access to in-person voting opportunities – including individuals with disabilities, individuals who speak languages other than English, individuals experiencing homelessness, and others – will still be able to access in-person voting opportunities. For information on how to vote by mail please go to the following link to view a YouTube video created by the Riverside County Registrar of Voters : Vote-by-mail Voting Instructional Video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bKBwLk8C1Y).
