Clerk Recorder Lunn Encourages Vote-By-Mail Voters To Check Their Ballots To Confirm Party Registration

(Ventura) – Ventura County Clerk Recorder/Registrar of Voters Mark Lunn encourages vote-by-mail voters to open their ballots upon receipt to ensure they reflect their preferred party while there is still time to make changes. Voters may also confirm their party registration online at http://venturavote.org­ by selecting “Am I a Registered Voter?” under the voter lookup menu option.

Voters registered with a political party that want to vote a ballot with a different party’s presidential primary, must re-register by May 23. Voter registration is available online at http://venturavote.org. Voters may also register on a paper form at the Ventura County Elections Division. A replacement ballot will be mailed shortly after registration.

Voters registered with no party preference can request a ballot for the American Independent Party, Democratic Party, or Libertarian Party in writing by completing the “Authorization to Request a Second Vote-By-Mail Ballot” document under the forms menu at http://venturavote.org by May 31. After May 31, voters can request a replacement ballot in person only at the Ventura County Elections Division.

The Ventura County Elections Division recently opened a room dedicated to vote-by-mail voting to provide voters an opportunity to cast their vote before Election Day. The Vote-By-Mail Room is located near the Elections Division on the lower plaza of the Hall of Administration at the Government Center, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
