May 2 Election Reminder on Greenbrae Issue

Special election for service area is vote by mail only

San Rafael, CA – Voting is underway in Marin County Service Area #16 (Greenbrae) to consider increasing a special tax for maintenance and improvements to landscaped medians, and the County’s Registrar of Voters, Lynda Roberts, has several reminders for voters.

“Remember that it’s vote-by-mail only with no polling places, and you must sign and date your ballot envelope,” Roberts said. “We can’t process a ballot unless the return envelope is signed. For the ballots we have received without a signature, we will send a notice to the voters so they have a chance to sign it.”

The ballot envelope must be postmarked on or before May 2. However, Roberts encourages voters to return ballots a few days before Election Day. 

Starting April 26, a secure drop box will be placed at the main entrance to the Marin County Civic Center through 8 p.m. Election Day. The main entrance is on Peter Behr Drive under the Civic Center’s south archway at 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael.

District residents who are eligible to vote but not registered may register online at registertovote.ca.gov, or go to the Elections Department to register. “This late-registration option became effective this year,” Roberts said. “After registering, voters will have to pick up their ballot in person at the Elections Department.”

Voters may cast ballots in person at the Elections Department, located in Suite 121 at the Civic Center. Voting may be done during regular weekday hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or on Election Day, May 2, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

For more information, call the Elections Department at 415-473-6441 or 415-473-6444, or go to www.marinvotes.org. Follow the Elections Department on Facebook.
