Your Polling Place is your Mail Box!

California Elections Code provides a regular precinct below 250 voters will become a Mail Ballot Precinct and voters will receive their ballots in the mail instead of going to a polling place. All Plumas County regular precincts are below 250 voters and will be voting by mail. Your Vote By Mail ballot was mailed to you on May 9, 2016, 29 days prior to Election Day, June 7, 2016. Don't discard it. If you haven't received it come into the Courthouse at 520 Main Street, Room 102 so we can provide you with a replacement ballot.

Questions ??  530-283-6256 or 1-844-676-VOTE.

You have 3 ways to return your Vote By Mail ballot:

Do you want to vote for President in the June 7, 2016 Primary?

All voters can vote in a Primary Election. Voting for President depends on the party you are registered with. California does not allow voters to claim an "independent" status when registering to vote. No Party Preference voters are not independent voters and cannot vote for any candidate for President in the Primary election.

No Party Preference Voters - click here for Cross Party Ballot Application Form.

The Presidential Primary Election is the most confusing election for voters when it comes to who you can vote for. Here are some frequently asked questions:

  • If I selected No Party Preference when I registered to vote, can I vote for anyone in a Primary Election?
  • No. If you do not select a party preference, you will receive a ballot without party nominated office candidates (such as President) unless you request a ballot for one of the three political parties that are allowing No Party Preference voters to request their ballot. Those are the Democratic party, the Libertarian party and the American Independent party. The Republican party is not allowing crossover voting.
  • Can I re-register to vote for any party?
  • The deadline to change your party is May 23, 2016.
  • If I selected the American Independent Party when I registered to vote, can I vote for any party candidate as an independent in the Primary Election?
  • No. The American Independent Party is a political party and you will receive a ballot with only American Independent Party candidates listed on it for the office of President.
  • Is there any way I can register to vote and be able to vote for any Presidential candidate in any party I want in the Primary Election?
  • No. You can vote for any party candidate in the General Election in November, but the Primary Election is to narrow down the list of candidates. The top two vote getters will move on from the Primary Election to the General Election.
