Do I have to request a Vote By Mail ballot every time?
You must request a Vote By Mail ballot every time you want to vote by mail unless you have requested and qualify for "permanent" Vote by Mail status. Elections Code 3206- If the voter fails to return an executed vote by mail ballot in two(2)consecutive statewide general elections the voter's name shall be deleted from the list of permanent vote by mail voters and vote at the polling location.
