More than 98,000 to be mailed; still time to register to vote on November 3
San Rafael, CA – The Marin County Elections Office started mailing more than 98,000 vote-by-mail ballots on Monday, October 5, giving local registered voters nearly a month to fill out and send in their ballots.
“The postmark matters!” said Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts. “We can now process ballots that are postmarked on or before Election Day, as long as we receive them within three days after the election.”
Vote-by-mail ballots not returned by mail must be at the Elections Office or delivered to a polling place not later than 8 p.m. on Election Day, November 3.
Voters who do not receive a ballot in the mail but want to vote by mail in the November 3 local district election, known as Uniform District Election, may apply for a ballot in one of the following ways:
If you don’t receive your ballot by October 13, please contact the Elections Department right away. Not yet registered in Marin County? You have until October 19 to register for the November 3 election. Go to www.registertovote.ca.gov or call 415-473-6456 to request a voter registration form in the mail.
A Uniform District Election is an election held in November of the odd year for local districts that have not consolidated their elections with the November of even-numbered years.
