Resources include voter information portal and audio of local measures
San Rafael, CA – The Marin County Elections Department has made it easy for voters to access a variety of information about the November 6 General Election through the website.
Logging into the secure Voter Information Portal, voters can find their registration status, precinct, polling location, directions to their polling place and check the status of their vote-by-mail ballot. The portal also includes online access to the voter information guide.
The idea was hatched in 2014 and the Marin County Information Services and Technology (IST) Department team made the concept a reality soon thereafter. The portal has continued to improve each year as features are redesigned for better accessibility.
Another handy feature introduced a few years ago is a link to access audio recordings of local measures and state propositions found under the Voter Accessibility choice. “We want all voters to have access to resources they need so they can make an informed decision when voting,” said Lynda Roberts, Marin County’s Registrar of Voters.
The site includes a link to election information where people can access past election results and learn about policies and procedures. The department’s mission is to provide a responsive, transparent, and professional approach to conducting elections that will inspire trust and confidence and promote the participation of all eligible citizens in the election process.
“Our comprehensive website helps accomplish this mission,” Roberts said.
If you’re not sure if you are registered to vote but plan to vote in the November 6 election, check the Voter Information Portal to find out, or call 415-473-6456.
