Presidential General Election
November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election
Glenn County voters', along with election workers' safety, is of paramount importance; therefore, additional health precautions will be in effect. All Glenn County active registered voters will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. If a voter does not receive their ballot by October 19, 2020, they should immediately contact our office at 530-934-6414.
We urge voters to vote the ballot mailed to them and return it through one of the 2 secure drop boxes located in the county. Drop boxes will be open beginning October 5, 2020 and up to 8:00 pm on Election Day. We recommend that voters utilize a drop box to return their ballot. For the convenience of voters, we have added another drop box. The locations of the drop boxes will be mailed with the ballots.
Voters can mail their ballot (no postage required) back to the Glenn County Elections office. It is a legal requirement that a mailed voted ballot envelope have a postmark showing no later than Tuesday, November 3, 2020 (election day). The Postal Service advises voters should deposit their ballots in the mail no later than October 27, 2020 to ensure that the envelope timely reaches the elections office.
It is a legal requirement that the signature on every returned voted ballot envelope be compared to the signature on the voter’s registration card. If a voter thinks that their signature has changed over time, they should contact the Glenn County Elections Office at 530-934-6414 or re-register online at www.registertovote.ca.gov. The DMV signature may be utilized with online voter registration.
If additional services including language assistance, or a replacement ballot are required, Glenn County will provide 2 locations for in-person voting opportunities. These Vote Centers will be open on Saturday, October 31, 2020; Sunday, November 1, 2020; Monday, November 2, 2020 and Election Day Tuesday, November 3, 2020. If you go to a Vote Center, you will be asked to wear a mask and you may have to wait in line.
The main elections office, located at 516 W. Sycamore Street, 2nd Floor, Willows, is also open for voting beginning Monday, October 5, 2020, through election day. All services are provided here so that voters can vote in person.
Voters can track their ballot, by requesting this service at www.WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov to receive automatic email, text or voice call notifications about their ballot. For the November election, all voters may request and receive a Remote Accessible Vote by Mail ballot. To request this service, voters should contact our office at 530-934-6414.
