Existing law requires that the vote by mail ballot be available to any registered voter and that the Secretary of State prepare and distribute to appropriate elections officials uniform printed and electronic applications for vote by mail ballots. Existing law requires that each ballot delivered to a qualified applicant be accompanied by a state voter information guide, unless the voter has already been provided a state voter information guide.
Existing law requires elections officials to establish processes and systems for a voter to verify that his or her vote by mail ballot or provisional ballot was counted.
This bill would require that the state voter information guide display the Internet Web site address for a voter to check the status of his or her vote by mail or provisional ballot.
