VOTING IN BUTTE COUNTY

Butte County is now 100% Vote-by-Mail, and voters are urged to return their ballot as soon as possible.

   1. When will the Butte County Elections Office mail my ballot?

       Ballots will be mailed no later than October 5, 2020. As of October 3rd, many in Butte County have received their ballot. Those who register to vote up to October 19th, will receive a ballot by mail. After the 19th, one may still register at the County elections office or at a Voter Assistance Center and receive a ballot at that time.

   2. Do Ballots Require Stamps?

       No. Postage for your ballot is prepaid, making mailing your ballot free of expense.

   3. Is a signature required on the back of the envelope?

       Yes. For your ballot to be officially counted you must sign and date the back of your envelope. Your signature on your ballot will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure that they match.

For additional convenience, Voter Assistance Centers will operate from October 31st through Election Day, November 3rd. See below for locations and hours of operation. In addition, Ballot Drop Boxes are positioned throughout the County and will be ready to receive your ballot as soon as you receive it.

Voter Assistance Centers will have more services available than traditional Polling Places. A voter will be able to register to vote and then vote with a provisional ballot. A voter will also be able to drop off a voted ballot, get a replacement ballot, get language assistance, or mark a ballot using ADA accessible devices. The Voter Assistance Centers staffs will have real-time access to the County’s Election Management System, allowing them to update the status of each voter (for example, if you’ve moved recently, or were displaced by the Camp Fire and still want to vote as a resident of the Ridge). A key difference between a Voter Assistance  Center and a polling place is that any voter can go to any Voter Assistance Center in Butte County and get the same services no matter which precinct they reside in.​
