Ballots on the Way; Plenty of Opportunity to Vote Early

Registrars from Bay Area counties promote myriad options

The following is a joint message from the registrars in 11 Bay Area counties, including Marin County.

Across the Bay Area, elections officials have sent out ballots that will be arriving in mailboxes this week and are encouraging voters to vote early.

All eligible California voters will receive a ballot in the mail due to the new law in California, AB 37. Bay Area residents have more ways than ever before to cast their ballots.

  • Mail the completed ballot to the local Elections office in the provided postage-paid return envelope.
  • Drop the completed ballot in the return envelope in an official ballot drop box.
  • Vote in person starting October 10 through November 8.
  • Register and vote on the same day if you like.
  • Don’t forget to sign the envelope!

Whichever way you prefer to vote; your county Elections Department is offering options.

“The changes to how Californians are voting gives our residents more options, making voting easier, and improving when, where and how you vote,” said Lynda Roberts, Marin County Registrar of Voters. “With so many options, we are really encouraging our Bay Area residents to vote early and take advantage of these great improvements to the voting experience.”

The Coalition of Bay Area Elections Officials is urging residents to vote early for the November 8 election. Voting ends at 8 p.m. that night, and there are many opportunities to vote before that.

The coalition work, which includes contributions from the Marin County Elections Department, has gained national accolades from the Election Center - The National Association of Election Officials.
