SAMPLE BALLOT PRINTING ERROR ~ TOWN OF PARADISE VOTERS ONLY

The Butte County Elections Office would like to alert voters in the Town of Paradise that a potential misprint in the Sample Ballot Booklet may have occurred in some booklets voters received this week.

COUNTY Elections OFFICIAL POINTS TO
CONVENIENCE OF VOTING BY MAIL IN NOVEMBER 2 GENERAL ELECTION

As the November 2 General Election nears, Butte County Clerk Recorder-Registrar of Voters Candace J. Grubbs is inviting Butte County media to be civically engaged by getting the word out about the option of voting by mail. Formerly known as absentee voting, vote by mail voting is an increasingly popular choice for Californians, but many still do not know they have the option.

"When you vote by mail, you never have to miss an election because you can't get to your polling place," said Candace Grubbs, the county's chief elections officer. "The ballot arrives in your mailbox, and you can vote at any time of day or night in the comfort of your home."

Grubbs added, "Signing up to vote by mail is simple and takes moments through the Butte County Elections Office website. With safeguards in place to prevent fraud and ensure voters' privacy is protected, many voters opt to vote from home rather than at the polls."

The deadline to register to vote for the November 2 General Election is October 18. Vote by mail voting begins October 4th. Vote by mail ballots must be received by Butte County Elections Officials by 8:00 p.m. on November 2. (Postmarks do not count.)

Butte County voters may obtain a vote by mail application online at http://clerk-recorder.buttecounty.net or by calling the county elections office at (530) 538-7761.

Between now and October 26, broadcast media are invited to air nonpartisan public service announcements to encourage Butte County residents to vote by mail.
