MENDOCINO Co., 3/1/20 — The Mendocino County Election’s Office has received reports that some registered voters have not received their mail-in-ballots. If you are among those people, you may still vote by casting a provisional ballot at a polling station, or to any local polling place (a list of all Mendocino County polling stations is below). Mail-in-ballots may be dropped off at polling places as well.
Additionally, citizens who are eligible to vote in California, but who are not registered, may go to the polls to register on election day, this coming Tuesday March 2, and then cast a conditional ballot, under California’s new same day registration law. It should be note that though most communities in the county are listed as having a polling station — Covelo is not.
Polls close at 8 p.m on election day at which point the ballots will be taken to the county Election’s Office in Ukiah to be counted. The count of votes cast that day, as well as mail-in-ballots already received should be completed that night, or by early the next morning. However, votes will continue to come in by mail for another several days.
One other note, if you’ve already filled out your ballot, and your selected candidate has subsequently dropped out of the race, you can surrender your ballot and pick out a new one. Candidates who’ve quit recently include Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer.
Below is the press release from the Mendocino County Assessor-Clerk-Recorder’s office:

All polling place ballots will be counted on election night at the central location – and not at each individual polling place. There will not be result tapes posted at the polling places. Each polling place will also have at least one ballot box for the voters to deposit their voted ballots into. Once the polling places close, poll workers will seal the voted ballots and get them ready to be transported to the County Election office in Ukiah for counting.
The County’s website will be up-dated on election night after the polls close at 8:00 p.m. with election results as often as we receive the polling place ballots. The County’s website address is: www.mendocinocounty.org
Fine but this needs to be investigated please stay on it!
I’m one of the people who did not receive my ballot I didn’t change parties and I haven’t moved.
I never received my ballot and voting information. When I went to the designated polling place for my area, no one was there/not operating this year. As others in Mendocino County, I also was not able to vote yesterday. So sad, that was important.
Hi Dawn, what polling place did you go to and do you remember what time of day it was? Did you request a replacement ballot at any point? We’d like to follow up on this, thanks for letting us know.
