How to vote in Mendocino County

Here’s everything you need to know for the June 7 election in Mendocino 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, your county election official’s office, or a ballot drop off box. Return your Vote-by-Mail ballot by June 7. Click here for more on VBM.

Every voter registered to vote by mail will be mailed a Vote-by-Mail ballot by May 9, 2022.

Vote In Person

No form of ID is needed to cast your vote in person. You are not required to bring your Vote-by-Mail ballot to your polling location if you prefer to cast your ballot in person, but it is highly encouraged.  Click here for a list of polling places.

Provisional Voting

There are two circumstances in which you have a right to cast a provisional ballot in an election in California. First, if you believe you are registered to vote, but your name does not appear on the voter list at a polling location, you can vote provisionally. Second, if you voted by mail, but the county does not have a record of receiving your vote-by-mail ballot, you can vote provisionally. 

Any eligible voter, including those displaced by wildfires, can cast a provisional ballot at any polling location in the county, and that ballot will be placed in a special provisional envelope before being put in the ballot box. Only the races you are eligible to vote in will be counted. A provisional ballot will be counted after county election officials confirm that you are registered to vote and have not already cast a ballot in this election. 

Any voter who votes provisionally has a right to know whether their provisional ballot was counted. Click here to find the status of your provisional ballot.
