The Presidential Primary Election is fast approaching on Tuesday, March 5, 2024. Voter information guides have been mailed, ballot drop-off ballot boxes are available, and in-person Early Voting starts in Santa Clara County at the end of February.

Three SCCLD libraries (Cupertino, Milpitas, and Saratoga) will host Early Voting centers from February 24 through March 4 from 10 am to 6 pm. They will also be open on Election Day from 7 am to 8 pm. 

Two of our libraries (Gilroy and Morgan Hill) will serve as Early Voting Centers from March 2 to 4 from 10 am to 6 pm and Election Day Voting Centers from 7 am to 8 pm on Tuesday, March 5.

All SCCLD libraries have secure ballot drop-off boxes that are accessible 24/7, except for Cupertino Library, which has a box next door at City Hall.
