The most common reasons for mail ballots to be rejected are that the voter’s signature did not match the voter’s signature on file or the voter didn’t sign the envelope. The Registrar of Voters will notify voters at least eight days before the election is certified and be given until two days before certification to resolve the issue. The Registrar of Voters must certify the results of this election no later than December 1.

Another common reason for ballots to be rejected is the ballot was received too late. Voters must return their voted ballot by 8 p.m. on November 3 at any polling location, mail ballot drop box or the Registrar of Voters. Ballots that are mailed must be postmarked on or before Election Day – November 3 – and received by November 20.
