Resolving Unsigned Mail Ballots and Provisional Ballots

When the Registrar of Voters receives a voted mail ballot or provisional ballot without the voter’s signature on the identification envelope, the Registrar of Voters is unable to count that ballot.  However, California law allows voters another chance to correct their mail ballot or provisional ballot up until two days before the election results are certified. These voters are notified by mail that they may:

  • Go to the Registrar of Voters to sign the mail ballot or provisional ballot identification envelope in person;
  • Complete and return an Unsigned Identification Envelope Statement; or
  • Fix the unsigned ballot identification envelope online.

If you received a letter from the Registrar of Voters stating that your mail ballot or provisional ballot return envelope was not signed, go to the Registrar of Voters to sign your envelope, or complete and return an Unsigned Ballot Statement.

Resolving Non-Matching Signatures on Mail Ballots and Provisional Ballots

When the Registrar of Voters receives a voted mail ballot or provisional ballot but is unable to compare the voter’s signature on the return envelope with the signature on file in the voter’s record, the Registrar of Voters is unable to count that ballot. However, California law allows voters another chance to correct their mail ballot or provisional ballot up until two days before the election results are certified. These voters are notified by mail that they may:

  • Go to the Registrar of Voters to sign the Signature Verification Statement in person;
  • Complete and return a Signature Verification Statement; or
  • Fix the signature on your ballot identification envelope online.

If you received a letter from the Registrar of Voters stating that your signature on your mail ballot return envelope or provisional ballot did not compare with your signature on file, complete and return a Signature Verification Statement immediately.
