“Report finds 1.7 percent of California vote-by-mail ballots rejected on average”


A new report finds on average 1.7 percent of vote-by-mail ballots cast in California have been rejected over the past decade. In three counties studied, young and newly registered voters were more likely than older voters to have their ballots rejected. 

“Improving California’s Vote-by-Mail Process by Reducing Ballot Rejection: A Three-County Study,” published by the California Voter Foundation, examines the demographics and voting methods of Sacramento, San Mateo and Santa Clara County voters whose November 2018 General Election vote-by-mail (VBM) ballots were rejected, online at: www.calvoter.org/rejectedballots.
