Seal, sign, and date it. Secure your ballot inside the official return envelope provided by your county elections office. Make sure the signature on the return envelope matches the one you provided when registering. For many voters, this will be the signature on your CA driver’s license or state ID.

Check box full

Return it. You have multiple options to return your ballot: 
By mail: No stamp is required to return your ballot through the USPS. Make sure your ballot is postmarked by November 3, 2020. 
Drop off: Drop your ballot off at an official secure drop box, polling place, vote center, or county elections office by 8:00 p.m. on November 3, 2020.

Voters who can return their ballots early will help ensure safe physical distancing at voting locations. Voting locations will be available in many counties before and on Election Day. Voting locations will offer voter registration, replacement ballots, accessible voting machines, and language assistance.

If you have already returned your ballot, thank you for being a voter and helping keep your community safe!


Yours sincerely,


Alex Padilla California Secretary of State

As Election Day approaches, the Arballo campaign is happy to share the following exciting updates with you all! We hope you are all doing well and staying safe. 



From the start of this campaign, we were told this district was unwinnable. However, that did not deter our team and we continued to work hard because we knew Central Valley families deserved better representation than Devin Nunes. Our latest poll shows our hard work and that of our volunteers is paying off. 

Democrat Phil Arballo has cut Rep. Devin Nunes’s (R-Calif.) lead in half and trails the incumbent by only 5 points with a month to go before Election Day, according to internal polling conducted on behalf of Arballo’s campaign.STORY HERE


10/8 | FRESNO BEE: Will Devin Nunes agree to a debate? He hasn’t accepted one since 2002

10/4 | UNIVISION: Destino 2020: Hispano aspira quitarle el puesto a Congresista que lleva 17 años en Washington

9/30 | POLITICO: GOP VOTER stars in new anti-Nunes spot


Early last month, we held our first virtual rally. We had the pleasure of sharing the evening with 80 amazing supporters!


Our amazing grassroots volunteers have been working hard to defeat Devin Nunes. With their help, our campaign has identified thousands of supporters and we are working tirelessly to ensure a large blue wave in CA-22 on November 3rd. 

Volunteers have written over 30,000 postcards, sent out nearly 150,000 text messages, and have made almost 100,000 calls to CA-22 residents. 

To help our efforts, send an email to:


Our grassroots supporters can see promise in flipping this seat. To date, we have raised over 4 million dollars from every day, working class Americans. 63,498 donors have stepped up to ensure we restore integrity to this seat in Congress. With the average contribution coming in at $31.76, our campaign is funded by the people, for the people not by corporations. Thanks to all of these contributions, we are within striking distance of flipping this district!


Team Arballo continues to work remotely and practice CDC guidelines. The health and safety of the staff as well as that of the community is of utmost importance to the campaign. We will continue to do our part in reducing the spreading.
