Ad­vice to vot­ers

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - BAY AREA -

The Cal­i­for­nia Voter Foun­da­tion sug­gests some ways vot­ers can en­sure their bal­lots are counted:

Ver­ify your regis­tra­tion sta­tus and voter ad­dress at vot­er­sta­tus.sos.ca.gov. Up­date your regis­tra­tion if you’ve moved or changed your name.

Sign up for Bal­lotTrax at WheresMyBa­l­lot.sos.ca.gov to see if your bal­lot has been counted.

Don’t mix up your bal­lot en­ve­lope with other vot­ers’ en­velopes, since there is an in­di­vid­ual iden­ti­fi­ca­tion code on each en­ve­lope.

Re­mem­ber to sign and date your bal­lot en­ve­lope be­fore re­turn­ing it.

If you’re un­sure what your regis­tra­tion sig­na­ture looks like, check your driver’s li­cense or state iden­ti­fi­ca­tion card. If you reg­is­tered on­line or at the DMV, that’s the sig­na­ture on file with the county elec­tion of­fice.

Mail­ing a bal­lot on elec­tion day doesn’t guar­an­tee it will be post­marked by elec­tion day. If you’re vot­ing close to elec­tion day, re­turn your bal­lot in per­son to a drop-off lo­ca­tion, a polling place or the county elec­tion of­fice.
