In-person voting locations will offer Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant touchscreen devices and voting assistance. Ventura County Elections is following local health orders and workers will be adhering to daily health checks, wearing face coverings, social distancing, and sanitizing equipment after use.

Voters will not be assigned to a specific voting location, they can visit any of the 48 locations and receive their home ballot. Locations may change due to unforeseen circumstances. Before visiting an in-person voting location, check the list at VenturaVote.org.

If voters choose to vote in person at a voting location, they will be asked to surrender their Vote By Mail ballot to receive a new ballot for a faster voting experience. If a ballot is not surrendered, and Elections staff is unable to confirm status of the Vote By Mail ballot on file, voters will be provided a provisional ballot.

Vote by Mail ballots returned by mail must be postmarked on or before November 3, and received by November 20, to be counted.

TALLYING THE VOTE

When Vote By Mail ballots are received by the County Elections Division, signatures on the return envelope will be compared to signatures on voter registration records to ensure they match. To preserve the secrecy of ballots, ballots will then be separated from the envelope, and then tallied.

All valid Vote By Mail ballots are counted in every election in California, regardless of the outcome or closeness of any race.

ELECTION RESULTS

Election results released shortly after 8 p.m. on November 3, will include Vote By Mail ballots processed to date. Throughout election night, ballots cast in person at the voting locations will be processed upon receipt, and result updates will be released throughout the evening. Vote By Mail ballots returned to in person voting locations and drop boxes on Tuesday, November 3, will be processed at a later date.

For more information, please visit the Elections Division website at venturavote.org or call (805) 654-2664.
