When the Registrar of Voters receives a voted mail ballot without the voter’s signature on the return envelope, the Registrar of Voters is unable to count that mail ballot. However, California law allows voters another chance to correct their ballot up to 8 days after the election. These voters are notified by mail that they may:
- Go to the Registrar of Voters to sign the mail ballot return envelope in person, or
- Complete and return an Unsigned Ballot Statement.
If you received a letter from the Registrar of Voters stating that your mail ballot return envelope was not signed, go to the Registrar of Voters to sign your envelope, or complete and return one of the following forms:
For the November 5, 2019 Consolidated Election, unsigned mail ballot return envelopes must be corrected by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, in order for the ballot to be counted.
For the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election, unsigned mail ballot return envelopes must be corrected by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, in order for the ballot to be counted.
