  • Watch for a ballot that will be sent out Oct. 5. Complete and deposit in a drop-off box at your very earliest convenience. Drop boxes will be placed outside county libraries in Chico, Oroville and Gridley, and available even if the library is closed.

The drop boxes will be monitored continuously and emptied at the Elections Office at least once a day. You can also place a postage-paid, signed envelope in the mail, but to be counted on election night, mail the ballot sooner than Nov. 3.
