Signature update forms are sent to all voters with rejected ballots with a letter explaining how they may resolve their signature issue so their ballot can be counted
VANCOUVER ‒ Voters that have had their ballot rejected due to their signature on their envelope not matching the signatures contained in their voter registration record or because the signature is missing from their ballot return envelope may resolve those issues up until 5 p.m., Nov. 28.
Signature update forms are sent to all voters with rejected ballots with a letter explaining how they may resolve their signature issue so their ballot can be counted. The letter explains that voters have until 5 p.m. Nov. 28 to return the completed form so their ballot may be counted.
“We understand candidate campaigns are contacting voters regarding rejected ballots,’’ read a statement from the Clark County Elections Office. “The Elections Office strongly encourages voters to only return their signature update forms directly to the Elections Office, by USPS, or via someone they know and trust. The forms must be received by 5 p.m., Nov. 28th.’’
Elections Office staff are not visiting voters at their residences or texting them. If a voter has provided the Elections Office their phone number on their ballot return envelope and has not returned their signature update form they will be called within three business days before the Nov. 29th certification date to remind them to return their signature update or missing signature form. Phone numbers provided to the Elections Office are exempt from public disclosure and are not provided as part of any public records request.
Voters may check their ballot status online at VoteWA.gov. After entering first and last name and date of birth they may select BALLOT STATUS to learn if their ballot has been accepted or rejected.
Voters may contact the Elections Office at (564) 397-2345 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions regarding the status of their ballot or how to resolve signature issues.
