Voting by Mail is the Safe, Secure, and Easy Option in 2020

Your health is important and so is your vote. Luckily, every registered voter in California can vote by mail from the safety of your home in 2020.

 

Instead of going to the polls on Election Day, you can vote using the vote-by-mail ballot that will be sent to you automatically in early October. After you have voted, insert your ballot in the envelope provided, making sure you complete all required information on the envelope.    

You may return your voted ballot by:     

  1. Sticking it in the mail; Vote-by-mail ballots that are mailed must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by your county elections office no later than 17 days after Election Day.
  2. Returning it in person to a polling place or the office of your county elections official; Vote-by-mail ballots that are personally delivered must be delivered no later than the close of polls at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
  3. Dropping your ballot into one of your county’s ballot drop boxes no later than the close of polls at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
  4. Authorizing someone to return the ballot on your behalf. Anyone may return your ballot for you, as long as they do not get paid on a per ballot basis. In order for your ballot to be counted, you must fill out the authorization section found on the outside of your ballot envelope.

So be on the lookout for that ballot in the mail in early October and vote!


2020 Census: 9 Questions, 3 Minutes, Billions of Dollars for California

Census results determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into California to support programs that benefit our communities such as parks, roads, schools, hospitals, health clinics, fire departments and more!                                                                                                                                                                              

For every person uncounted in the census, we lose $20,000 over ten years for our local communities.

The results of the census also determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.

All responses are kept anonymous and by law cannot be released, even to law enforcement agencies.

Unemployment Insurance / EDD

 The office of Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo of the 51st District is taking calls to help constituents navigate their unemployment insurance claims, for free. If it's taking too long to hear about your unemployment insurance claims filed with the California Employment Development Department (EDD), or you haven't received a response on the status of your application, please call (213) 483-5151. 

 

To speak to someone over the phone, please contact the District Office during regular business hours, Monday-Friday: (213) 483-5151. To reach someone by email, contact Assemblymember.Carrillo@assembly.ca.gov

 


No le pague a los estafadores que cobran por ayudarle con las reclamos del desempleo - llame a nuestra oficina!

 

Sabemos que la tarda es demasiada larga para los constituyentes sobre el estado de su reclamo de seguro de desempleo presentado ante el Departamento de Desarollo de Empleo de California (EDD).

 

¡Por eso nuestra oficina está aquí! Si necesita ayuda o no ha recibido una respuesta sobre el estado de su solicitud, llámenos al (213) 483-5151.

 

No se deje engañar por la gente que le propone cobrar para ayudarle con su reclamo! Hemos escuchado informes de que los preparadores de impuestos sin escrúpulos están cobrando a los constituyentes para supuestamente "ayudar" a que las reclamaciones del seguro de desempleo avancen. Nunca debe pagarle a alguien por ayuda para procesar sus beneficios de desempleo.

 

Nuestras oficinas legislativas estatales están aquí para ayudar a los constituyentes a navegar sus reclamos de seguro de desempleo, de forma gratuita. Por favor, no pague a alguien para que le ayude, llame a nuestras oficinas legislativas directamente.

 

Para hablar con alguien por teléfono, comuníquese con mi Oficina del Distrito durante las horas de negocio, de lunes a viernes: (213) 483-5151. Para ponerse en contacto con alguien por correo electronico, pongase en contacto con Assemblymember.Carrillo@assembly.ca.gov.

 

Sincerely,

 

Wendy Carrillo

Assemblymember, 51st District
