BUTTE AND SHASTA COUNTIES, Calif. - Action News Now spoke with both the Butte and Shasta County Clerk-Recorders to find out what voters need to know before heading to the polls tomorrow.

"If you still have your ballot and you haven't mailed it in drop it off at any polling location," said Candace Grubbs, Butte County Clerk-Recorder. 

But before you do - Grubbs wants you to make sure you signed the back of your green envelope.

"If you have a signature that's cursive or you print and then suddenly you scribble, we're not going to be able to tell that you are who you are, just be conscientious, look at your driver's license what's your signature look like on your driver's license," Grubbs said.

Grubbs said if you haven't mailed your ballot yet - make sure you have it ready before the mail carrier picks up your outgoing mail.

"They have to be postmarked tomorrow and if you drop it off at the post office after closing time it's not going to get postmarked tomorrow, that's the problem so be conscientious about when you drop it off or put it in your mailbox," Grubbs said.

If you are voting in person, bring your sample ballots with you.

"Make sure you have your sample ballot marked that way that when you get your real ballot you can go into the booth just mark it on down and not have to worry about doing a lot of reading," Grubbs said.

Action News Now asked Grubbs about campaigning near polling places.

"Please do not wear a t-shirt that says vote for or a pin that says vote for, if you have a pin on to just take it off a button because there is no campaigning inside the polling location you can't campaign within 100 feet," Grubbs said.

The polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and close at 8 p.m.

"As long as you're in line at 8 p.m. everyone is supposed to vote that's in line but if you hit that door at 8:05 p.m., no I'm sorry," Grubbs said.

If are planning to go to a polling place but aren't registered - Shasta County Clerk Cathy Darling Allen says there's a new rule just for that.

"Conditional voter registration allows people who are not registered to vote at all to come into our office and register and vote on the same day which has not been the case in the past in California," Allen said. "The voter registration deadline was two weeks prior to the election so now basically anyone can vote any time they want to."
