The November 2022 election is here! There is a lot for Goleta voters to consider, so let’s go Goleta! Make sure your voice is heard.
Ballot drop boxes are open 24 hours a day through 8:00 p.m. on November 8, election night. In Goleta, there are two secure official ballot box locations: one at Goleta City Hall (130 Cremona Drive) and one at the Goleta Community Center (5679 Hollister Avenue) at the end of the parking lot in front of the building. To find official, secure Ballot Drop Box locations throughout the County, visit the interactive map here or view a list of locations here.
In addition to the secure official drop boxes, ballots can also be returned by mail (postmarked by Election Day, November 8), returned in person to one of three Santa Barbara County Election Offices (locations listed below), or to any polling place on Election Day.
This is a historic election for Goleta as it is our first-ever By-District Election. The City is now divided into four districts, and registered voters in Districts 1 and 2 will have the opportunity to elect a City Councilmember from the District in which they live. If you live in Goleta, make sure to find out what district you are in.
