In preparation for the Nov. 5 special general election, the Placer County Elections Office began distribution of  vote-by-mail guides to registered Placer County voters in California’s 1st Assembly District beginning Sept. 26.

Voter information guides have been mailed  and provide Assembly District 1 race information and polling place locations. The majority of polling place locations have changed due to the special election. Voters are encouraged to check and confirm their polling place locations.
