Missing and Mismatched Signatures

Occasionally, our office receives a voted vote-by-mail ballot without the voter's signature or applies a signature that does not match what our office has on file. Nevada County Elections will send the voter a letter notifying them of the issue and the opportunity to resolve or "cure" the missing or mismatched signature. Voters have up until 2 days before the election is certified to cure a missing or mismatched signature.

If you were sent a notification of a missing or mismatched signature for the November 3, 2020 General Election, you're free to use the following forms to cure the defect.


If you would like to update your signature, you may use this form.
