Madera County Voters Don’t Have To Use Mail-In Ballot

MADERA – The Madera County Elections Department is reminding voters: You do not have to vote the ballot that was mailed to you. You can choose to vote in person at any Vote Center in Madera County.

If you do use the Vote by Mail ballot that was sent to you, there are three options: drop your ballot off at the Post Office (this requires one postage stamp – and be sure to sign the back of the envelope), drop it into any secure Drop Box (no postage required), or take it to any of the six Vote Centers. It doesn’t matter where you live in the county, any Vote Center will do for both voting or ballot drop-off.
