Returning your voted Vote by Mail ballot

Once you have voted your Vote by Mail ballot, your signature and Plumas County residence address are required on the RETURN ID ENVELOPE for your ballot to be counted. Ballots that arrive back to the Elections Division without the voter's signature or residence address cannot be counted unless we can contact the voter to provide the missing information.

Return ID Envelopes

Enclose your voted ballot and drop it in the mail. It must be postmarked by Election Day to be counted. To ensure your poll is one of the first ballots to be counted and included in the initial summary reports, vote and mail your ballot back to the Elections Department early for processing.
