How To Vote If You've Been Displaced By Wildfires

Displaced by wildfires?

Here's what you need to know about voting.

  • Displaced people have until October 13th to decide where they want their ballot sent. Provisional ballots should be a last resort.
  • Even though we vote by mail, it’s okay if you do not have an address.  You can provide any physical address to receive your ballot which can include a shelter, motorhome or any location with an address.
  • The mailing address of someone that is homeless or resides where mail service is unavailable can be the office of the county clerk, you can also pick up your ballot at the county election office.
  • If you end up in a different county you have until October 13th to decide where to send your ballot.  
  • You can also show up and cast a provisional ballot in a county if you are a resident if you have been displaced.
