Permanent Early Voting List

You may request to be placed on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) so you do not have to request a mailed early ballot each election. If you sign up for the Permanent Early Voting, you will receive a ballot automatically approximately 26 days prior to each election.

In order to be included on the "Permanent Early Voting List", you must make a written request to your county recorder’s office specifically asking to be added to the permanent list. The request must include the voter's name, residence address, and mailing address within the county they reside (if different from the residence address), date of birth and their signature.
