Vote Centers Now Open Every Day Until The Election

OAKHURST – You can fill out a ballot, turn in or replace your mail-in ballot, get help with filling out your ballot, or use the electronic ballot marking device — all at the Oakhurst Vote Center, located at State Center Community College. There is also a voting location at the Government Center in Madera.

As of Saturday, May 26, both centers are staffed and will be open every day until the election from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., including weekends. On election day, June 5, Vote Centers will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

All registered voters in Madera County were mailed a ballot on May 7 (including a Voter Information Guide with everything you need to know). You can either fill that out and drop it in the mail (postage required), or you can bring it by any Vote Center.

Or, you can stop in and vote in person at any Vote Center, regardless of where you live in the county. No longer do you have to go to a specific location; all Vote Centers will accept your ballot or allow you to vote in person.

If you happen to misplace the mail-in ballot you received, you can stop by any Vote Center for a replacement ballot to take home and fill out, or just vote in person while you’re there.

From Saturday, May 26, to Friday, June 1, there will be two Vote Centers available to serve you – one in Oakhurst and one at the Government Center in Madera.
