Plumas County Votes by Mail
If you have moved, changed your mailing address by adding or closing a post office box, and you haven’t completed a new Voter Registration Form notifying us, you may not receive a voter information guide and a ballot for upcoming elections. Completing a change of address card at the Post Office DOES NOT update your voter registration. A new Voter Registration Form is required when you have changes.
Official Vote by Mail ballots mail on October 5, 2020. Watch for yours in the mail. This is what to watch for:
Plumas County votes entirely by mail. You should receive your ballot by October 13. If you have not received it, call our office at 530-283-6256. The two most important things to remember when you receive it:
1. Open it, vote the ballot, complete and sign the blue Return ID envelope, place the ballot inside and seal it.
2. Mail it as soon as possible. Ballots received too late cannot be counted. Ballots must be postmarked by 11/3/2020, but waiting until Election Day can cause delays in results. Don't chance it - vote it - mail it!
