VOTE SAFELY AND SECURELY DURING THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

PRESS RELEASE

Napa County voters can be assured that recent national developments will not impact safe and securing voting leading up to the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election.  To make sure that voters receive their official vote by mail ballot the week of October 5, 2020, they should confirm their registration status now at https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov  “We have been assured by our regional and local postal officials that there is more than adequate capacity to deliver 81,000 vote by mail ballots during that week,” commented Registrar of Voters John Tuteur.

Voters have several options to return their voted ballot in their signed return ballot envelope.  If the ballot is mailed and postmarked on or before Election Day Tuesday November 3, 2020, California law allows that ballot to be counted as long as it is received at the Election Division by Friday November 20, 2020, 17 days after the election.  Voters can also deposit their signed return ballot envelope in one of our 11 county-collected ballot drop boxes that are open 24/7 from Tuesday October 6, 2020 at 8 a.m. through Election Day Tuesday November 3, 2020 at 8 p.m.  Napa County also offers drive through voting at 4 locations on Monday November 2, 2020 from 8 am to 5 p.m. and Election Day Tuesday November 3, 2020 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.   Drop box and drive through locations will be available on our website, in our Voter Information Guide and in the instructions that accompany the official ballot.

“We encourage all voters to use their vote by mail ballot to vote safely and securely,” Tuteur added. “In person voting should be limited to unusual circumstances and will be subject to health officer guidelines of masks, social distancing and hand sanitation.”  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Registrar Tuteur 707-253-4459 or john.tuteur@countyofnapa.org
