Imperial County Sample Ballot Booklets and Vote by Mail Ballots Delayed



IMPERIAL COUNTY — Debbie Porter, Registrar of Voters, wishes to inform all registered voters of Imperial County that they should expect to receive their sample ballot booklets and vote by mail ballots by Friday, October 21, 2016.  Ms. Porter was notified late Saturday afternoon that the printer vendor’s printing press was inoperable for three days leading to delays of the sample ballot booklets and ballots being issued to Imperial County voters.  Individuals should begin receiving their sample ballot booklets and vote by mail ballots in the next several days.

Anyone planning to use the application to request a Vote by Mail ballot in the sample ballot booklet may call the Imperial County Registrar of Voters office and request a ballot be mailed.  Vote by Mail ballots may be requested until October 24, 2016.

The Registrar of Voters office hours of operation are, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and they are located at 940 West Main Street, Suite 206, El Centro, CA.

It is the priority of the Registrar’s Office to provide quality elections services.  The community’s patience is greatly appreciated.  For more information, contact the Registrar’s office at (442) 265-1060.

  1. We used to own a print shop in Lemoore, Ca. My husband also printed for Navy Publications and Printing, and taught Printing & Graphic Arts at Calipatria and Centinela State Prisons (where they printed documents used by prisons, and other entities throughout the state). He NEVER missed a deadline! (unless it was due to the ineptness of the entity providing the material to be printed)
    He was busy as I read the article about the Imperial Valley sample ballots and the vote by mail ballots being sent out late. Before I got to the reason why, he said, “WATCH THEM BLAME THE PRINTER/PRINTSHOP!” Excuses, excuses, most likely caused by the county registrar’s office not getting the info to the printer on time. What happens if there are no ballots for Election Day?
