State Certified Printer ‘Falls Behind’: Some Election Materials Arriving Late

Elections-VOTELassen County Clerk Julie Bustamante announced today that the state certified printer who was hired to print the June 7th, 2016 primary election voter information guides/sample ballot booklets and the official ballots has notified her that ‘due to circumstances beyond their control’ the company is behind schedule for the mailing process for a few California counties.

According to Bustamante the printer has assured her office that, “they are doing everything possible to complete the process and get this information to the voters as quickly as possible.”

If you are a Permanent Vote-by-Mail voter or you live in a Vote-by-Mail Precinct your voter information guide will be included with your official ballot.

Voters who do not receive their voter information guides or their vote-by-mail ballots by Wednesday, May 18th are encouraged to contact the Clerk’s office at 530-251-8217.

The US Postal Service will not forward election materials and you will not receive them if the Clerk’s Office does not have your current mailing address.

The last day to register to vote for this Election is Monday, May 23, 2016.

Bustamante urged voters to check the back of their Voter Information Guide/Sample Ballot booklet to find their polling location. It also contains an application for a Vote-by-Mail Ballot. If you wish to Vote-by-Mail, the application must be returned to the County Clerk’s office by Tuesday, May 31, 2016.

Ballots can be returned in person to the County Clerk’s office, located in the Historic Courthouse at 220 S Lassen St, Suite 5, in Susanville, or at any polling location in Lassen County on Election Day. Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than Election Day and received within three (3) days of Election Day to be counted.

If you have any questions contact the County Clerk’s Office at 530-251-8217.
