Concerns About Your Ballot?

California, unlike some states, offers voters the chance to correct some problems with their ballot.

Errors made by an absentee voter signing the envelope — including a missing signature or one that doesn't match what's on file with local or state officials — are a concern across the United States when so many voters are choosing to skip in-person voting.

If there's no signature, election officials must give the voter until Nov. 11 — eight days after election day — to fix the problem. Your local elections office should mail you a document called an unsigned ballot statement. You have up to 28 days after the election to return it.

If the signatures don't match, the voter must be notified at least eight days before election results are certified. With certification on Dec. 3, that means voters must be contacted by Nov. 25 and given until Dec. 1 to resolve the signature discrepancy.
