Yolo County Elections Office Special to the Express The Yolo County Elections Office began mailing County Voter Information Guides (CVIG) to all registered voters on Thursday, Aug. 12, And will mail Vote-by-Mail ballots to all active voters on Monday, Aug. 16, for the Sept. 14 California Gubernatorial Recall Election. The CVIG includes Ballot Drop Box (BDB) and Voter Assistance Center (VAC) locations and days/hours of operation, sample ballots, candidate statements for the West Sacramento local contest and other important information. Voters that have ‘opted out’ of receiving a paper version of the CVIG may view it on the Yolo County Elections website beginning Monday, Aug. 16. Every Vote-by-Mail ballot comes with a first-class postage paid return envelope. Completed Vote-by-Mail ballots will be processed and counted as long as they are postmarked on or before Election Day and received by county elections officials no later than Sept. 21. Voters can also return their completed Vote-by-Mail ballots to any Ballot Drop Box, Voter Assistance Center or at the Yolo County Elections Office. Yolo County residents who have not received their County Voter Information Guide or Vote-by-Mail ballot by August 23, 2021 should contact the Yolo County Election Office. “The integrity of the delivery and processing of Vote-by-Mail ballots is our top priority. We continue to have an excellent relationship with local USPS representatives to ensure secure and smooth deliveries of all election materials to active Yolo County registered voters,” says Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters.
