Vote by mail and then track your ballot to make sure it makes it to where it needs to be. Or use this map to take your ballot to an Official Ballot Box in Chico.

All voting will be done by mail(opens in new window). You will receive a ballot in the mail and will be able to send it in postage paid or return it to a Ballot Box, like the one in front of the Bell Memorial Union on campus!
