How to vote in Imperial County

Vote by Mail (VBM)

Be sure to sign the return envelope. Your signature must appear similar to the original signature on your voter registration form. A Vote-by-Mail ballot without your signature will not be counted. Your Vote-by-Mail ballot can be returned by mail, dropped off at any polling place, or deposited in a ballot drop off box. Click here for more on VBM.

Ballot Drop Off
