While the election took place nine days ago, it is far from over. Millions of California ballots still remain to be counted. Voters and election officials alike are working to correct problems with vote-by-mail envelopes that are missing voters' signatures or the signatures are mismatched. Several California contests are still too close to call. Read below for more details on the status of the vote count and what Californians can and should be doing right now to ensure their vote-by-mail ballots get counted.
It's important to note that this work is going on at a time when firefighters are battling several major wildfires across the state that have upended many lives and created some of the worst air quality ever seen in the state.
Wishing health and safety for all,
- Kim Alexander, President & Founder, California Voter Foundation
