About the Sima Spector Health Conference:
This annual conference originated from Hadassah Women's Zionist Organization of America, nationally providing free quality health education and information to women of all ages and all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Sima Spector organized and led the Hadassah "Healthy Women, Healthy Lives" Women's Health Conference in the Sacramento area from 1994 until 2006, when she was tragically killed by a drunk driver. During the past decade, the conference was renamed to honor her memory and her dedication to health education.

2. BALLOT DROP BOXES: You can drop off your ballot at any secure Ballot Drop Box as soon as you receive it. No postage is required at Ballot Drop Boxes. Find the Ballot Drop Box locations near you.

3. VOTE CENTERS: You can vote in person by visiting any Vote Center in Sacramento County. All Vote Centers will be open for at least four days: from Saturday, June 2, through Tuesday, June 5.  Some Vote Centers will be open for 11 days starting Saturday, May 26.

At every Vote Center you can:

  • Vote in person.
