Election correction: Sign absentee envelope, not ballot
Published: Thursday, Oct. 23, 2008
Mail-in voters must sign their ballot envelopes for their votes to be counted.
They must not sign their ballots. Signed ballots will not be counted and will be discarded.
An editorial in The Sacramento Bee today incorrectly advises mail-in voters to sign their ballots.
In an e-mail to the Sacramento Bee Editorial Board, state election officials reminded voters that “they must sign their ballot envelopes and absolutely not sign ballots themselves. Under state law, a signed ballot that allows the voter to be identified by others must be discarded.”
So, mail-in voters remember: Sign the ballot envelope only. Do not sign the ballot.
