How do I complete my ballot?

Please follow these steps to complete the ballot:

 

1.    Verify that the owner name, addresses, and parcel number(s) listed on the ballot are correct.  If they are not correct, please telephone the City of Diamond Bar at (909) 839-7000.  (If something is incorrect, find out from the caller what information is not correct and include this on your e-mail-form log to SCI.)

 

2.    Mark or completely fill in the oval next to the word “YES” or “NO” to approve or disapprove of the proposed assessment.  You may use a pencil or pen.  Be sure to fill in only one oval, otherwise, your ballot may be disqualified.

3.    Sign and date the ballot.   After making your vote, simply FOLD the ballot so that your vote is on the inside of the fold.  Then place the ballot in the return envelope provided and seal the envelope.  No postage is necessary.  Please see the response to the next question below for more information on how to return the ballot.

4.    If you make a mistake in completing your ballot or wish to change or withdraw your ballot, please submit a request by mail to the City of Diamond Bar, at 21810 Copley, Diamond Bar, CA 91765; or in person at the same address, or by calling (909) 839-7000.
