Check your mailbox: 21 million California ballots are on their way to voters

More than 21 million ballots will be mailed, more than in any state in the nation. Most will arrive this week, though some counties began the process almost two weeks ago. State law requires absentee ballots to be mailed no later than Monday, 29 days before the Nov. 3 election.

Researchers have estimated that the average California election in the last decade saw an average of 1.7% of vote-by-mail ballots rejected for a variety of reasons. Based on voter turnout in the 2016 presidential election ó which some think will be surpassed this year ó the historical average would translate into almost 250,000 ballots not being counted.

Last month, Alexanderís organization released a detailed review of rejected absentee ballots in three counties from the November 2018 election. The top three reasons were that voters returned them too late, they didnít sign the ballot envelope or the signature provided didnít match the one on file.
