Different ways to cast your vote in Lassen County

Don’t want to send your ballot in the mail? Lassen County voters have options.

While all registered voters in the state will receive a vote-by-mail ballot and can safely send it back in the postage paid envelopes included with the ballot, the loss of some  in-person polling locations has upset some residents, supervisor Tom Hammond said during the Tuesday, Oct. 13 Lassen County Board of Supervisors meeting.

Here are some alternative voting options local residents have other than sending their ballots through the mail.


Drive-up drop off boxes

Lassen County has two drop off boxes, open 24 hours a day, through 8 p.m. Election night, Tuesday, Nov. 3. They will be checked daily.

  • Janesville Fire Hall, 463-390 Main St., Janesville.
  • County Clerks Office behind the Historic Courthouse in alley, 220 South Lassen St., Susanville.

County Clerks/ Election Office

Want to vote in person? Stop by the County Clerk-Recorder’s Office at 220 South Lassen Street in Susanville to ask questions and cast your ballot in person. Give them a call at (530) 251-8217.

Voting Assistance Centers

  • Janesville Fire Hall
  • County Clerks Office

Both locations will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 through Monday, Nov. 2. They will also be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3.


Voters can also send their ballots through the mail, postmarked by Nov. 3. No stamp is required.

Those casting their ballot should remember to seal it and sign it. All signatures are compared to the signature on your voter registration card, and if the signature does not match, you will be contacted and given an opportunity to correct the issues.

If you make a mistake, you can ask for a replacement ballot.

Also, voters can sign up at ballottrax.net/voter to receive updates via text, email or phone call on the status of your vote-by-mail ballot.
