According to a front-page article in the San Francisco Chronicle, if you vote by mail, you do not have to attach a postal stamp. The election office receiving the mail in ballot has to accept the completed official ballot, stamp or no stamp. The post office is required to deliver ballots without a stamp, keep records of how many ballots arrived without a stamp and charge the county elections department.
So if you have been reluctant to post your completed and signed official ballot because you do not have a stamp or do not want to buy one, mail it anyway. This election is so important and all votes matter.
