Elections Department Open this Weekend

Residents can register and vote from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday

San Rafael, CA – The Marin County Elections Department will be ready to assist residents with registering and voting on Saturday and Sunday, October 31 and November 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Voters may come to the Civic Center office in San Rafael to drop off their vote-by-mail ballot as well.

“The response to this election has been considerable, and we want to ensure residents have every opportunity to register and vote in the office,” said Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts. “We want every vote to count.”

Roberts said ballots for the November 3 General Election have been coming in steadily and she has a few reminders.

In addition to signing the ballot return envelope, remember that it must be postmarked on or before November 3, Election Day.

If a voter decides not to mail a ballot, there are other return options:

  • Return a filled-out ballot in the signed envelope to the Elections Department drop box available weekdays during regular business hours, available this coming weekend, or on Election Day between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Return a filled-out ballot in the signed envelope to any polling location in Marin during the early voting days starting October 31 or before 8 p.m. on Election Day. Locations and hours of operation are posted on the Elections Department website.
  • Use one of the convenient and secure drop boxes found throughout the county by 8 p.m. Election Day.

Voters can track their ballot by signing up for Where’s My Ballot on the Secretary of State’s website.

The Elections Department is in Suite 121, Marin County Civic Center, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael. For more information, call the Elections Department at 415-473-6441.
