The Sierra County Registrar of Voters would like to remind all voters that the Presidential General Election will be held on November 6, 2012.  All Sierra County voting precincts have been designated as “all mailed” ballot precincts for this election.  This means that all Sierra County voters will be receiving a vote-by-mail ballot.  Please look for your vote-by-mail ballot in the mail the week of October 8, 2012.  Voters who plan on being temporarily away for the Presidential General Election should notify the Elections Office no later than October 1, 2012 of the temporary mailing address you would like your ballot mailed to for this election only, to ensure timely receipt of your ballot.

The last day to register to vote for the Presidential General Election is October 22, 2012.  If you have moved to a new residence address within the County or wish to change your party affiliation you must reregister by this date.

Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Elections Official no later than the close of the polls on Election Day, postmarks will not be accepted.  Ballots may also be dropped off at the Elections Office at 100 Courthouse Square, Room 11, Downieville or on Election Day only at the Loyalton Drop Box located at the Senior Center, First Street, Loyalton.  We will be happy to assist you if you have any questions.  Please contact the County Clerk’s Office for assistance at (530) 289-3295 or
