Voting Underway for June 5 Election

Still time to register and get a ballot by mail

San Rafael, CA – Ballots for the June 5 Statewide Direct Primary Election have been sent to vote-by-mail voters in Marin County, and voting is taking place at the Elections Department at the Marin County Civic Center.

Registered voters may walk into the Elections Department and cast a ballot between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays or until 8 p.m. on Election Day. The office is in Suite 121 at 3501 Civic Center Drive in San Rafael.

Residents can still register by May 21 to vote-by-mail or vote at the polls. If you miss that deadline, you can register at or come to the Elections Department. During the late registration period, from May 22 through 8 p.m. on Election Day, registered voters will have cast ballots in the Elections Department.

Voters may access their voter information guide by signing in to the Voter Information Portal on the Elections Department webpage.

Those who want to receive a ballot in the mail must apply by May 29 in one of the following ways:

  • Online Application
  • By phone at 415-473-6441 or 415-473-6444
  • In person at the Elections Department during the regular hours, weekdays 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

If you miss the May 29 deadline, you can get a vote-by-mail ballot by coming to the Elections Department.

Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day. For convenience, a secure ballot box decorated in red, white and blue is located at the main entrance to the Civic Center through 8 p.m. Election Day. The entrance is on Peter Behr Drive under the Civic Center’s south archway.

“We check the box every afternoon and retrieve ballots so we can process them right away,” said Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts.

She reminds voters to sign their return envelope or the Elections Department cannot process the ballot.

If you’re not sure if you are registered to vote but plan to vote in this election, check the Voter Information Portal on our website to find out, or call 415-473-6456.
