Remote Accessible Vote by Mail

Lynda Roberts, Registrar of Voters, Elections

Allows any voter to download, mark, and print their ballot at home. Voters may use their own assistive technology to read and mark the ballot. Remote Accessible Vote by Mail (RAVBM) is not “internet voting,” you must print and return your marked ballot.

Any voter may use this service by requesting a RAVBM when they review their information on My Voter Status. Once you sign in you'll need to scroll down to the bottom of the screen.

Service is available starting 29 days before the election. All ballots must be printed and returned in an envelope signed by the voter.

Return the voted ballot in signed envelope using one of these methods:

  • Mail — must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 3;
  • Drop-off locations — open until 8 p.m. on election night;
  • Polling places — open from October 31 through 8 p.m. on November 3;
  • Elections Department — open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Information about locations and hours of operation is available at the Marin County Elections website.

This service is available to all voters only for the November 3, 2020 General Election. See the California Secretary of State's RAVBM site for more details.
