Vote-By-Mail Ballots Are On Their Way

More than 100,000 to be shipped; still time to register to vote for Nov. 4

San Rafael, CA - The Marin County Elections Office started mailing more than 100,000 vote-by-mail ballots on Monday, October 6, giving local registered voters nearly a month to fill out and send in their ballots.

Voters who do not receive a ballot in the mail but want to vote by mail in the November 4 general election may apply for a ballot in one of the following ways:

  • In person 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays or Election Day between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Elections Office, Room 121, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael
  • Apply Online
  • By phone at 415-473-6441 or 415-473-6444
  • In writing until October 28. Send a letter or use the application on the back of the Voter Information Pamphlet. Mail to the Registrar of Voters, PO Box E, San Rafael, CA 94913-3904.

Registrar Lynda Roberts reminds voters to ensure their ballots are received no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day. Vote-by-mail ballots must be at the Elections Office or delivered to a polling place on November 4.

“We really want every vote to count,” she said, “and a post mark does not count.”

“Smart phones are becoming our information centers, so this specially-designed website will allow voters to review election issues at their total convenience,” said Lynda Roberts, Marin County’s Registrar of Voters. “We want everyone to feel prepared to vote on November 4.”
