Return ballot books to Elections Office

Nevada County voters can help save tax dollars by returning Sample Ballot Booklets mailed to the wrong person or wrong address.

Mark the back page of the Sample Ballot Booklet with a note such as “Not at this address” and put it back in the mail.

After the election, the U.S. Postal Service will provide the county Elections Office with a detailed list of addresses at which Sample Ballot Booklets were undeliverable or returned. The office will compare that list with its voter file and purge or inactivate voters who have died or moved.

After each election, several hundred voters who moved out of the county are inactivated based on information derived from the Sample Ballot Booklet return program. The program saves county taxpayers thousands of dollars.

Sample Ballot Booklets were mailed to county voters the last week in January. Another mailing of booklets is scheduled after Monday, which is the deadline to register to vote and receive election materials for the March 5 election.

For more information, contact the Nevada County clerk’s office at 265-1297.
