San Rafael, CA – The Marin County Elections Department will be ready to assist residents with registering and voting on Saturday, February 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Voters also may come to the San Rafael office to drop off their vote-by-mail ballot.

“The response to this election has been significant, and we want to give residents more time to register and vote in the office,” said Registrar of Voters Lynda Roberts. “We want every vote to count.”

Roberts said ballots for the March 3 Presidential Primary Election have been coming in steadily and has a few reminders.

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