'Go Green' ballots

March 28, 2014 

Madera County Clerk-Recorder & Registrar of Voters has announced that voters now have choice in how they receive their sample ballots.

In all elections, a sample ballot booklet is printed for each registered voter.In an effort to reduce costs in county budgets, state law now allows voters to 'go green' by choosing to 'opt out' of receiving their sample ballot booklet by mail and accessing it online instead.

It's convenient, it's paperless and it's free. Reducing the number of sample ballot booklets printed will save the County thousands of tax payer dollars.

To sign up, visit the County Clerk-Elections Division website and provide the required information.

For voters that prefer to receive their sample ballot by mail, no action is required. Your sample ballot booklet will continue to arrive by mail approximately 29 days before each election.
