SANTA ROSA, CA – Sonoma County Clerk, William F. Rousseau, is urging residents displaced by the October 2017 wildfires to update their mailing address with the Registrar of Voters so that they receive voting materials for upcoming elections.
“We want to help voters who may have been impacted by the wildfires understand how to update their voter registration. With thousands of voters displaced by the recent wildfires, we want to ensure that everyone who wishes to participate in the upcoming elections is given the opportunity to do so,” said William F. Rousseau, Sonoma County Clerk.
Voters who plan to return to their properties may retain the impacted residence address in order to continue to vote in their original precinct, but will need to update their temporary mailing address on their registration. Voters who do not plan to return to their impacted property address should re-register at their new permanent residence address.
