    I have been a permanent mail voter in California for many years.

    Any registered voter may vote using a vote-by-mail ballot instead of going to the polls on Election Day. California law also allows any registered voter to become a permanent vote-by-mail voter. To request a vote-by-mail ballot for one election or to become a permanent vote-by-mail voter, follow the simple process described below.
    You get your ballot in the mail three or four weeks before Election Day, and after you fill it out you can either return it by mail or drop it off at the county registrar of voters' office any time before the polls close on Election Day.  You can either request vote-by-mail for one election only, or request permanent vote-by-mail status, which I have, and that means that you automatically get a ballot in the mail for every election (federal, state, and/or local).

    In San Diego County, where I live, 57 percent of all registered voters get their ballot by mail.
