If you receive a ballot addressed to someone that has passed away, please notify the Registrar of Voters (ROV) by placing the mail back into the mailbox with the word “Deceased” written on the front of the envelope. Upon receipt, state law requires the ROV to send a notification to the address of the deceased voter to confirm that the correct individual has been identified. If the voter does not notify the Registrar of Voters within 15 days that the ROV received incorrect information, the voter’s registration will be cancelled per Elections Code section 2201.
