Ways to Vote

Ballot by Mail

The City of Douglas is having an all Ballot by Mail election for the three open council seats. This means that every eligible voter will automatically receive their ballot in the mail.

Ballot Replacement Centers


Replacement ballots will be issued if the ballot is lost, spoiled, destroyed or not received. If a voter needs a replacement ballot or prefers to vote in person, City Hall will be open on Election Day from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm. Voters may also call the County Recorder's office to request a replacement ballot by mail.


Voting FAQ

1. When are the polls open?

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Don't forget your ID!

2. Can I vote early?

Absolutely. If you are on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL), you will automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox beginning 27 days before the election. Voters not on PEVL may make a one-time early ballot request.

3. Do I need ID to vote early?

If you vote early, either by mail or in person, ID is not required. Your signature on the early ballot affidavit is compared to your voter registration record by the County Recorder to determine if the signature is valid. ID is required if you vote at a polling place or voting center on Election Day.

4. How can military & overseas voters (UOCAVA) get a ballot?

Military and Overseas voters have special voting rights under federal and state law (Uniformed & Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)). These rights include the use of a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register to vote and request an early ballot as well as the use of a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), which serves as an emergency back-up ballot.

5. Do I have to vote everything on my ballot?

No, voters do not have to vote everything on their ballot. The votes they do cast will still be counted. However, we encourage voters to vote down the ballot as local races, propositions, judges, etc. can impact voters' daily lives.
