NOTE TO OUR MILITARY AND OVERSEAS VOTERS: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, international postal service to/from certain countries is currently being affected. The Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) is recommending ways to avoid any postal issues that may result from changes made by international postal operators. FVAP guidance, as well as a listing of countries with impacted postal service can be found on their website at https://www.fvap.gov/info/news/2020/3/24/covid-updates-for-uocava-voters-and-eos.
We HIGHLY recommend that you request electronic delivery of ballots in order to have as little impact as possible on your ability to receive your ballot and election materials. Please contact us at (760) 932-5537, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
