Remote Accessible Vote by Mail allows voters the option to receive and mark their ballot electronically. Once the voter completes and reviews their ballot, it must be printed and mailed back to the elections office postmarked by Election Day.
Once you request a Remote Accessible Vote by mail ballot we will then send email confirming your application. A separate email with voting and ballot instructions will be sent early, in the previous month to the election, when the vote by mail period opens. Any questions, please contact the elections office 530-225-5730
If you are temporarily away, such as an extended vacation, attending college or spending the season in another state, and Shasta County is your home of permanent residence, you can provide a different mailing address for your ballot to be delivered to. Make your request as early as possible to allow the ballot to arrive at your mailing address on time.
