Candace J Grubbs, Butte County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters wants to help voters who have been impacted by the Camp Fire understand how to update your Voter Registration record.

When voting, your residence address determines the contests that appear on your official ballot.  Your mailing address is where we mail your voting materials, which is important because election mail cannot be forwarded to you, it is returned back to the County.  You may only be legally registered in one county.  See the attached fact sheet for more information.

Weekly Spotlight


The Building Resiliency Center (BRC) is opening on Monday, January 27th at 8 am. Opening the BRC will help further our goal of getting our residents back home as soon as possible. The BRC is located at 6295 Skyway and will be open starting Jan. 27th from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

The BRC will be a one-stop shop for residents who are rebuilding, or even considering rebuilding in Paradise. The Town of Paradise Building Department is relocating to the BRC to offer residents a better experience as our community rebuilds. There is more space, seating areas and more permit technicians to help speed up the process.

What’s new: 

  • Rebuild Advocates available to residents of the Town of Paradise and Butte County to help navigate the process of rebuilding. The advocates can help people apply for loans and connect with contractors. You may call 530-872-6291 ext. 130 to schedule an appointment. Please reach out, they are here for you.
