OROVILLE, Calif. -  Voters in Butte County started to receive their mail-in ballots today for this years elections. 

Butte County Clerk Candace Grubbs explained what to expect when receiving your ballot. 

“The process of when you receive your ballot, it is going to be mailed to you in n envelope that looks like this with a blue stripe," said Grubbs. "Inside, will of course be your 'I voted early sticker' because we are encouraging people to vote early.”

Voters will also receive a voter information guide that includes the locations of all of the voters assistance centers and of course, your ballot.

Grubbs explained why voters need to make sure to sign the back of their envelope before placing it in the mail. 

“This is the most important thing that some people forget to put their signature under the flap here," said Grubbs. "They need to sign so that we know that you are the person that voted that ballot. “

Some voters said they are feeling optimistic about the mail-in process.

“In the last 10 years, I have used a mail-in ballot," said Oroville resident, Jack O-Shea. "I used to live in Hong Kong for about three years and I got used to it there and I also feel like it is a safer way to do it but I just got mine in the mail today and filled it out and signed, sealed and delivered.”

“The mail-in ballots for me is amazing," said Oroville resident, Maria Dashler. "It is very convenient and because what is going on around this county with the fire and everything, I don’t think people have any mail box there so might as well go straight to the post office and mail in your ballot.”

Grubbs said that those who don’t have access to their mail due to fires, should call the registrars office in Oroville to update their information.

Voters can mail in or drop off their ballots up until election day and to see a full list of where you can drop off your ballots, click HERE.
