The City of Yorba Linda contracts with the Orange County Registrar of Voters for selection of polling places and workers. Every effort is made to maintain consistent polling sites for each area, however, polling places may vary from election to election. Registered voters will receive a sample ballot a few weeks before the election that will provide the polling place location, date, and time. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on election day. If you are unsure of when and where you vote, log onto the County's web site here or call the Yorba Linda City Clerk's Office at (714) 961-7150.
Any registered voter is eligible to vote by mail, but you must request a ballot application no later than seven days prior to the election. Applications may be obtained from the Orange County Registrar of Voter's Office at (714) 567-7600. You can also download the application from the County of Orange's website. The sample ballot you receive in the mail will also contain a Vote-By-Mail Ballot application, and many candidates now mail applications to voters as well. If your application is approved, you will receive a ballot in the mail. The completed ballot must be received at the Orange County Registrar of Voter's Office by Election Day in order to be counted. You can mail it in, or return it to any polling place on Election Day. Applications are only approved for vote by mail voting for the current election period. However, voters can request permanent vote-by-mail status. If you are approved for this status, you must vote in all primary and general elections held in your area. Failure to do so relinquishes permanent vote-by-mail status.
