New Open Primary Information (pdf ~51KB)

Political parties can no longer formally nominate candidates for voter-nominated offices, so a candidate who finishes in the top two at the primary election and advances to the general election is not the official nominee of any party for the office.

Conditional voting has arrived!

Sometimes called "same day voting", conditional voting is now an option for Humboldt County residents. Beginning January 1, 2017, Humboldt County residents can come into the Humboldt County Office of Elections on Election Day and conditionally vote. More information about conditional voting, including who is eligible to vote conditionally, is available on The Humboldt County Office of Elections ◼
Conditional Voting page.

Election Cycle Changes
Pursuant to Senate Bill 415, many school and special districts in Humboldt County are required to move to even-year general elections to increase voter turnout. Other districts are electing to move for the same reason. Voters within these districts will receive notification postcards by mail.
