The June 8th Primary Election is less than a month away, however voters who wish to submit their ballot by mail may now do so. County elections officials began mailing ballots to the millions of Californian voters who have opted to vote by mail, and as an email sent out by the office of Secretary of State Debra Bowen notes, it has become "an increasingly popular choice" here.Once only an option for those who were out of town or had a medical reason for being absent on Election Day, vote-by-mail, or absentee voting, there are now 5.8 million registered users of the service in California. Says Bowen:

Voting by mail gives you the flexibility to vote when it is convenient for you. You can cast your vote-by-mail ballot now, or mark it as you make up your mind on an issue or candidate. Just make sure your county elections official receives your ballot by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day so it will be counted.

Voters interested in submitting their June 8 ballot by mail must apply by June 1. The application is available online, however it must be submitted to the County Elections Office. LA County absentee voting info is here.
