Important Information for Voters Receiving Vote-by-Mail Ballots
No Party Preference voters should be on the lookout for their correct ballot
SANTA ANA, CA – May 11, 2016 – Voters who have requested a vote-by-mail ballot (or who normally receive one each election) will be receiving their ballots in the next few days. These ballots were prepared for printing on April 23, 2016, which means if a voter changed their party registration, or requested a specific party ballot after that date, it may not be reflected on the ballot that they receive.
If the ballot received is not the party that was requested, voters can simply go to ocvote.com/second and request a replacement ballot, which should arrive within 24-48 hours.
Voters who did not declare a party preference when they registered have three options:
1. They can vote a non-partisan ballot (which will not contain candidates for president)
2. They can request a Democratic, American Independent, or Libertarian ballot
3. They can re-register (prior to May 23rd) as a Republican, Green, or Peace and Freedom party member and request a vote-by-mail ballot, which will contain candidates from the party of their choice.
To register to vote (or re-register) voters can visit ocvote.com/registration
To verify current registration voters can visit ocvote.com/verify
To request a second ballot voters can visit ocvote.com/second
