Important Voter Alert from Santa Barbara Mayor Marty Blum
Dear Santa Barbara Voter,
This is an alert about a potential problem with the vote by mail ballots.
Some voters may not have received their ballot in the mail for the Santa Barbara City election. There are reports that ballots intended for complexes or apartment buildings may have been stacked with the junk or marketing mail rather than inserted into mailboxes.
This raises serious concerns that Santa Barbara apartment residents may not have fair access to their ballots.
Every registered voter in Santa Barbara should have received their mail-in ballot this week-- in their mailbox. Remember, this year’s election is an all-vote-by-mail election, so the ballot you were mailed is the only method of voting this year.
If you are a registered voter in Santa Barbara, you have the right to vote. If you did not receive your ballot please call the Santa Barbara City Clerk’s office immediately at 805-564-5309. They will send you a replacement ballot allowing you to vote.
If you sent in your ballot and want to make sure it was received, call the same number, 805-564-5309, and City Hall staff will check their data to make sure they got your ballot.
Finally, if you are aware of official city ballots that were not placed into the appropriate mailboxes, please call Democratic Party Headquarters and let us know: 805-965-8030.
For further information on the vote by mail election, you can visit the city’s voter information webpage at http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/Resident/SB_City_Vote/
Make sure your vote counts! Santa Barbara, 'send it in.'
