Drop your ballot in an Official Ballot Drop Box

The Yolo County Elections Office has placed 16 secure Ballot Drop Boxes (BDBs) throughout the county. The official BDBs help voters deliver their ballots directly to the Elections Office. The ballots are picked up by Yolo County Ballot Box Retrieval Teams. Some BDBs will be secured outdoors and open 24 hours a day. The BDBs withstand vandalism, removal, and inclement weather. The ballot deposit slot is designed to prevent tampering and unauthorized removal of ballots.


All locations are available from October 10, 2022, through November 7, 2022. On November 8, 2022 (Election Day) the Ballot Drop Boxes will be open until 8:00 p.m.
