The California Presidential Primary Election will take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
To serve the vote-by-mail voters, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills will conduct a ballot collection drive at church. Once the ballots are collected, the Real Impact team will personally deliver the ballots to county elections officials.
The law has long provided the opportunity for vote-by-mail voters to have a family member or a household member return their ballots (sometimes called Absentee Ballots), to the polling place on Election Day. Those restrictions were legally removed and now the law permits anyone designated by the voter to return the ballot.
As most of us know, many people find it difficult to get to the polling place on Election Day. Those who vote by mail sometimes are busy and forget to return their ballot to election officials prior to the deadline. Ballot collection as a church will improve voter turnout and ensure safe delivery of ballots to election officials.
Vote-by-mail ballots will be collected for voters in ONLY these counties:
· San Bernardino County
· Los Angeles County
· Riverside County
· Orange County
Bring you ballot to the church courtyard on these dates:
· Sunday, February 9, 2020
· Sunday, February 16, 2020
· Sunday, February 23, 2020
· Sunday, March 1, 2020
IMPORTANT information about filling out the return envelope:
Fill in the section of required information on the back of the envelope that includes your signature, printed name, address, and date.
An additional section is for naming the person who will return the ballot. Leave that section blank. The member of Real Impact Team returning your ballot is required to add his or her signature to that section. It will look similar to this:
The Real Impact Team will have an information booth in the courtyard to answer your questions during the ballot collection drive.
