8. In California, EVERYONE is now mailed a ballot. One can still "elect" (ahem) to vote in person

at a designated local vote center or you can mail in your ballot, drop it off at the local registrar's office, drop box, etc.

Each election, a voter is given about 5 or 6 different ways their vote can be counted.

If you mail in your ballot, you must sign and date it.

What if you mail in your ballot, and then vote on election day at a vote center? Well, only the last vote done will be counted.

So, if an election is say, November 4, and you mail in your ballot and it is received in October, then you vote on Election Day, only your election day vote is counted as it is the most recent and considered your latest and "official" choice. Your mail-in ballot will then be looked at, shown that you already voted, and it will be discarded.

Thus, one CANNOT vote twice because only your last vote is counted.
