  1. Ask TBC: Do I have to affix postage to my vote by mail ballot?

    Tuesday, Oct 21 2014 02:08 PM

    Q: I live in a permanent vote by mail precinct. The instructions included with the ballot state on the last line: "Be sure to sign your return envelope and affix the required 49 cent first class postage stamp."

    However, the envelope is marked "no postage necessary if mailed in the United States." It is also marked "Business Reply Mail, First Class Mail, Permit No. 14, Bakersfield, CA" and "postage will be paid by addressee."

    Is the county attempting to recoup some money by asking voters to pay the postage? Will ballots be returned without postage affixed be counted?
