MENDOCINO Co., 6/6/22 — The redistricting process — which happens every ten years to remain consistent with census data — made only slight changes in Mendocino County. But one of the biggest changes in Tuesday’s primary election from previous cycles is the mail-in ballot, which the California legislature made permanent after seeing record success in mail-in voting during the 2020 general election and the 2021 gubernatorial recall election. Each registered voter in the county should have received a ballot in the mail, which they can choose to return by mail, at a secure dropbox or in person at a polling station.
Eligible voters who are not yet registered can register at polling locations on Election Day and cast their ballots by 8 p.m. These votes will be counted once their registration is processed. If there was a problem with your ballot, you can also address this requesting a provisional ballot at a local polling station (see below).
For more information about the candidates, you can check out information in the sample ballot, and read our coverage of the campaigns this spring. We’ll be updating you starting Tuesday evening when the initial results are released.
