Any California registered voter may request a Vote-by-Mail ballot. Voters may cast Vote-by-Mail ballots in person in the Elections Office no earlier than 29 days before an election and extends until the close of polls on election day. Regular office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.. The office is open until 8:00 p.m. on election day.
If you are registered as a permanent Vote-by-Mail voter, your ballot will automatically be sent to you. If you are not a permanent Vote-by-Mail voter but wish to vote by mail, you must request your ballot using the form found here.
Mail your vote-by-mail application to:
Mono County Elections
PO Box 237
Bridgeport, CA 93517
After you have voted, insert your ballot in the envelope provided, making sure you complete all required information on the envelope. You may return your voted Vote-by-Mail ballot by:
1) Mailing it to your county elections official (Check with your post office to make sure you have sufficient postage)
2) Returning it in person to a polling place or the elections office in your county on Election Day; or
3) Authorizing a relative or person living in the same household as you to return the ballot on your behalf.
Regardless of how the ballot is returned, it MUST be postmarked by the time polls close at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, and received in the Elections Office no later than three days later (E+3). Late-arriving Vote-by-Mail ballots will not be counted.
When your Vote-by-Mail ballot is received by your county elections official, your signature on the return envelope will be compared to the signature on your voter registration card to ensure they match. To preserve the secrecy of your ballot, the ballot will then be separated from the envelope, and then it will be tallied.
Your permanent vote-by-mail status will only end if you do not vote in four consecutive statewide general elections.
Most common circumstances when an election official will ask a voter to cast a provisional ballot are:
- First time voters: If the voter cannot provide proof of identification.
- Vote-By-Mail voter who appears in person and does not relinquish their unvoted vote-by-mail ballot.
- Voter has moved within the County and did not re-register.
- Voter who is not on the polling place roster for an unknown reason.
No provisional ballot is counted or precluded from being counted until the elections official goes through the detailed process to determine whether a voter's provisional ballot should be counted. (Elections Code sections 14310-14311, 15350, and 15100-15112.)
Provisional Voters may confirm the status of their provisional ballot through the following free access phone number: (866) 327-0201.
