Where do I vote? Look up your polling place here!

Here are a few ways to look up your polling place. The first two contain polling-place information by street address only, so you can look up your polling place without typing in your personal information.

The most accurate way to look up your polling place is to visit the Fresno County Registrar’s website. You’ll need to input some of your personal information, but you will receive the most current listing of your polling place.

Dr. Joaquin Arambula: Win the June 7 election for the Valley

From the desk of Dr. Joaquin Arambula:

2016-arambula-banner

It’s been quite a month! Since I last emailed you, I was sworn in as a member of the California State Assembly and immediately went to work on behalf of the Valley.

My time in the Assembly has already been incredibly rewarding. Within minutes of being sworn in, I voted to ensure clean water for thousands of Californians. And I have fought for better access to health care for disadvantaged communities, including meeting with Governor Brown on health care issues.

Last week, I teamed up with Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin to fight for hundreds of millions of dollars in additional state funding for Fresno County. You can learn more about our efforts here and here.

But even with all the action in Sacramento, our campaign has been hard at work getting ready for the June 7 Primary Election. We are out talking to people in the community, at their doors and on the phones to make sure they vote in this important election.

And we need your help! Without your support, I would not have the opportunity to fight for our Valley in the Assembly – and I need your continued support to be successful on June 7 so I can keep fighting for the next several years.

We need volunteers to help with our voter contact efforts, find big sign locations, promote the campaign on social media, help with community outreach and more. If you want to help, click here to email us, call us at (559) 264-3131 or signup online today!

Ballots for the Primary Election are being mailed to vote by mail voters, so look for your ballot in the mail later this week and return it as soon as possible. Your vote is important!

Thank you for all your support.

Sincerely,

P.S. You can also help ensure we have the resources to deliver our message to voters. Click here to make a contribution of $250, $100, $50 or whatever you can afford today.
