Ballots Coming Soon for August 27 Special Election

Voters in two districts to decide on special tax measures

San Rafael, CA – Key dates are coming up in an August 27 special election for residents living within the Bolinas-Stinson Union School District and the Inverness Permanent Road Division No. 2. Both are vote-by-mail elections; no polling places will be open except for the Marin County Elections Department at the Civic Center in San Rafael.

Voters in the school district will be voting yes or no on Measure B, determining the amount of a special tax for quality educational programs.

Voters in the road division will vote on Measure C, determining the amount of a special tax for road maintenance.

All registered voters within the districts will receive a postage-paid envelope along with their ballot and must remember to sign the envelope before mailing it back. Also, the ballot envelope must be postmarked on or before Election Day or it won’t count.
