The most common reasons for mail ballots to be rejected are that the voter’s signature did not compare to the voter’s signature on file or the voter didn’t sign the mail ballot identification envelope. The Registrar of Voters will notify voters by mail, attempt to reach you by phone or email, and provide them with an opportunity to resolve their issue.

Another reason for ballots to be rejected is the ballot was received too late. Voters must return their voted ballot by 8 p.m. on March 5 at any polling location, mail ballot drop‑box or the Registrar of Voters office. Ballots that are mailed must be postmarked on or before Election Day – Tuesday, March 5 – and received by Tuesday, March 12.
