Your Right to Vote
The single purpose of this initiative is to ensure that all registered voters are automatically mailed ballots from the election official before every election. Automatically mailed ballots shall be in proper form for voting, have all necessary instructions and shall be accompanied by a postage paid first class return envelope to the election official. A limited number of county-wide polling places shall remain open on election days for on site voting and for voters to return of automatically mailed ballots.
Proposition 205 would require every state, county and local election to be conducted by mail-in ballots, while allowing an absolute minimum number of countywide polling places to be used as well. Each registered voter would automatically be mailed a ballot not fewer than 15 days before the election, along with a pre-paid, stamped envelope for the return of the voted ballot. All ballots sent to voters would be by non-forwardable mail, with address correction requested. Voters would be instructed to return their ballots no later than the close of the election on election day.
Proposition 205 would require elections officials to maintain only the absolute minimum number of polling places, each of which would be open to any voter in the county, instead of being limited to voters in that election precinct. These countywide polling places could be located in election offices or other locations, other than school buildings. Existing provisions [More...]
