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 May 7, 2019 City of San Bernardino Ward 3 Special Mail Ballot Election, unsigned mail ballot return envelopes must be corrected by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in order for the ballot to be counted.
