California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Friday that requires county officials to send vote-by-mail ballots to every registered voter for the general election this November.

The order was issued in acknowledgment of the threat COVID-19 continually poses to public health. California voters who might require in-person voting options — such as those with disabilities, non-English-speaking voters and unhoused individuals — will have access to in-person voting.

If counties continue to lack clarity for in-person voting options and other details of the general election by May 30, further executive orders may be issued addressing these concerns.
