Vote By Mail (absentee) Ballots and our Sample Ballots will be mailed out to voters on
October 11, 2016 and will be available in the County Clerk’s Office, for the PRESIDENTIAL
GENERAL ELECTION to be conducted on NOVEMBER 8, 2016, according to Susan M. Ranochak,
Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder. The County Clerk’s Office is located in Room 1020 of the County
Administration Building located at 501 Low Gap Road, Ukiah. If voters who normally vote by mail
have not received their vote by mail ballot by Wednesday, October 19, 2016, please call our office to
arrange to receive a replacement ballot.
Susan M. Ranochak would like to remind voters that the last day applications may be
received for a Vote By Mail (Absentee) Ballot is 5 p.m. on November 1, 2016. If for any reason a
voter will be unable to appear at their polling place and vote on Election Day, November 8, 2016,
they may apply for and vote a Vote By Mail Ballot.
For those interested in observing the Vote By Mail process, we normally begin getting voted
ballots back the week after they are mailed. Our office processes (we check signatures & file in
precinct order) these ballots on a daily basis once we have received our mail. We get our daily mail
at approximately 11 am on Mondays and 10 am Tuesdays – Fridays. The public is invited to
observe this process, as well as our other processes. Normally the last week of October through
November 14 is the highest volume for our office receiving and processing voted ballots. Please
call our office for schedules.
