  • Voters who wish to vote by mail must submit a written request for a ballot no later than 7 days prior to election day. If you will be unable to vote in person on election day, promptly complete and sign the application for a vote by mail ballot and return it to:
     
    REGISTRAR-RECORDER/COUNTY CLERK
    P.O. BOX 30450
    LOS ANGELES, CA 90030-0450
     
  • A letter request is acceptable if it identifies the election for which a ballot is being requested, contains the voter's name and signature, registered address and the address to which the ballot should be mailed.
     
  • The signature of each person asking for a vote by mail ballot is required in order to verify the legitimacy of the application.

Permanent Vote By Mail Voter Status

Under state law, a voter may apply for permanent vote by mail status. As a permanent vote by mail voter, you will no longer have to apply for future elections. A ballot will automatically be mailed to you for each election in which you are eligible to vote. A spouse or other person who resides with you may also want to apply for permanent vote by mail status.

As of January 1, 2006 and pursuant to SB 39, a voter’s name shall be deleted from the permanent vote by mail voter list if he or she fails to return a vote by mail ballot for two (2) consecutive statewide general elections.

You may request an application for Permanent Vote By Mail status by calling (562) 466-1323 or writing:

REGISTRAR-RECORDER/COUNTY CLERK
P.O. BOX 30450
LOS ANGELES, CA 90030-0450

Emergency Vote By Mail

Vote by mail ballots issued in the last six (6) days prior to an election and on Election Day are called Emergency Vote By Mail Ballots. These ballots cannot be issued by mail. To obtain an Emergency Vote By Mail Ballot, the voter or the voter’s authorized representative must provide a written request to the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.

To print or download a Permanent Vote By Mail Voter Application, see the links section below.

Voters with Disabilities Polling place access:  If there is no access to the polling place, a voter may request a ballot on election day from a precinct board member and vote it outside the polling place. The back cover of the Official Sample Ballot booklet identifies the location of the polling place, and indicates whether the location is accessible to disabled voters.

Recorded information for voters with vision impairments:  Cassette tape recordings of the information printed in ballot pamphlets for state and county measures in primary and general elections may be obtained approximately 4 weeks before the election from the Registrar's Election Information Section, city and county libraries and the Braille Institute.
