The eligible voter shall mark the absentee ballot and enclose it in the pre-addressed absentee ballot return envelope on which the voter must sign their name and the return envelope placed in the U.S. mail.
All mailed absentee ballots will be received through the pre-addressed post office box or dropping off at Election Department at the Main Tribal Office in Klamath, California. Two election staff will pick up absentee ballots from the U.S. post office box at least two days per week. Absentee ballots will be logged in, but not opened. Once the absentee ballot is logged in, the election staff will verify voter signatures and then place in the locked ballot box until counting begins on election night. The absentee ballot box shall remain locked until opened for the purpose of counting ballots according to the procedure for counting ballots as established in this title.
