Yolo County Voter Information Guides and Vote-by-Mail Ballots now available for the City of Davis May 2, 2023, All-Mail Ballot Special Municipal Election

Friday, March 31, 2023

The Yolo County Elections Office mailed County Voter Information Guides to all active voters in the City of Davis City Council District 3 (2019 boundaries) on Thursday, March 23, 2023, and will mail vote-by-mail ballots on Monday, April 3, 2023, for the May 2, 2023, All-Mail Ballot Special Municipal Election to fill a vacancy on city council. If you have not received your ballot by Monday, April 10, please contact the Elections Office.

The County Voter Information Guides include the days and hours of operation for the Yolo County Elections Office and Ballot Drop Box locations, a practice ballot, both candidate statements, services available at the Yolo County Elections Office, and other important information.

Voters who have “opted out” of receiving a paper version of the County Voter Information Guide may view an accessible version with translated reference ballots on the Yolo County Elections website: https://www.yoloelections.org.

Every vote-by-mail ballot comes with a first-class postage paid return identification envelope. Completed vote-by-mail ballots will be processed and counted if they are postmarked on or before Election Day, Tuesday, May 2, and received by county elections officials no later than Friday, May 5. Voters can also return their completed vote-by-mail ballots to any Ballot Drop Box or the Yolo County Elections Office.

“The integrity of the delivery and processing of vote-by-mail ballots is our top priority,” said Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters. “We continue to have an excellent relationship with local USPS representatives to ensure secure and smooth deliveries of all election materials to active Yolo County registered voters.”

Voters are Encouraged to Take the Following Steps to Prepare for the Special Election:

  • Sign-up for vote-by-mail ballot tracking at sos.ca.gov. Voters may sign-up for automated notifications about their vote-by-mail ballots by email, text, or voice call.
  • Make a plan for voting. Voters are encouraged to vote early and by mail. Please note, there are no vote centers for this all-mail ballot election.
  • Make sure you sign and date the back of your own vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot return identification envelope. Every voter’s signature on the vote-by-mail ballot return identification envelope is compared against the voter’s registration record. If a signature is missing or does not match the registration record, elections officials will reach out to the voter to try and resolve the matter. Voters can also resolve the challenge to their VBM return identification envelope by submitting a “cure statement” on our website https://www.yoloelections.org.
