Remote Accessible Vote by Mail

Lynda Roberts, Registrar of Voters, Elections

What
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.

Who
Any voter may use this service by requesting a link via email — enter RAVBM in the subject line, send to votebymail@marincounty.org.

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

How
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.
