Default Vote by mail.

1, It's THREE separate pages. These crooks will never stop.
2, And the #'s on the sample ballot, are not on the official ballot.
3, Than they make you pull stubbs off three separate pieces of paper.

Seriously Banana Republic is working overtime to confuse, divide, frustrate.

I dunno man, if it's that confusing for someone should they really be voting in the first place?

I have and always the same. Just as you have received.
The wife and I take our children to the local poling place and turn them in (our ballots, not the children) on voting day so my kids see the process.
Very easy and convenient, I must say.

Is that rite, I don't remember it being that way last time.

It's only the third time I voted by mail. I would always go to the polling place before.

Thanks

I only got two voting pages. The general and the county (Riverside). Seems pretty straightforward to me.

Convenient, sure, but probably the biggest vulnerability for fraud. VBM should really be heavily restricted and have better verification systems in place, with VBM status requiring renewal (registration in general should require it, IMO).

OP: which county are you in?

The Orange County ballot is 2 sheets of paper, front and back of the 1st sheet, front only of the 2nd sheet (at least mine is).

Personally I think absentee ballots should be abolished and we should use indelible ink to mark people after they have voted in person. This would solve three voter fraud sources (fraud by vote-by-mail, fraud by voting twice or more, fraud by dead people voting).

It wouldn't solve problems like hacking Diebold election systems or poll workers purposefully misplacing entire containers of ballots, etc.

Don't know what the hoopla is. My mail-in ballot matches the voter guide. It's just 3 pages. Big letters. You looking for pictures? And yes you have to tear off the top portion so you can verify that it was counted.

I'm going to show up and vote in person this time, particularly for the entertainment value.

My VBM was 4 pages front and back. Total 8 sides; although side 8 was blank. I hate it. Way to easy for counters to "loose them" seeing how the votes are going..

Hmmm. It's been that way in California for as long as I can remember, At least since they got rid of the punch type and good old Chad. But even those had a strip you removed and retained.

San Bernardino, 2 pages front and back... that's typical.
My ballots in OC in the 80s and 90s were punched cards that matched up perfectly with the sample ballot... those were the kind that could produce "hanging chads"

I have lived in Modesto (Stanislaus County) for almost 25 years and don't recall the ballot ever being more than 1 page, front and back used if needed. But the pages are long: 8.5" wide by 17" long. Not sure if this is a Modesto only thing or the rest of the county is the same.

I don’t know what to say about someone thinking they are too hard. I guess that’s up to how much brain capacity each person has.

I will say that the tear-off portion is great.
It allows you to keep a receipt of your vote, and you can then go to the official website afterwards and verify that your vote made it by mail and was counted.

I'm still cynical on this...a famous "comrade" once said it's not who votes it's who does the counting.
