Yolo County Voter Information Guides and Vote-by-Mail Ballots now available for the November 8, 2022 General Election

Monday, October, 10, 2022

The Yolo County Elections Office mailed County Voter Information Guides to all registered voters beginning Wednesday, October 5, and will mail vote-by-mail ballots to all active voters on Monday, October 10 for the November 8, 2022, General Election.

The County Voter Information Guides include Ballot Drop Box and Vote Center locations and their days and hours of operation, a practice ballot, candidate statements for local contests and other important information.

Voters who have “opted out” of receiving a paper version of the County Voter Information Guide may view it on the Yolo County Elections website: https://sites.omniballot.us/06113/app/home.

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, November 8, and received by county elections officials no later than Tuesday, November 15. Voters can also return their completed vote-by-mail ballots to any Ballot Drop Box, Vote Center, or the Mobile Vote Center, which will be making stops in the rural areas.

“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 General Election:

  • Sign-up for vote-by-mail ballot tracking at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov. Voters who sign-up will receive 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 if possible.
  • Make sure you sign and date the back of your own vote-by-mail 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.
