Early voting for the Nov. 5 election begins Monday, Oct. 7, and runs through Nov. 4 in San Mateo County.
“As a convenience, voters may come to one of our two Voting Centers to cast their ballots or drop off their voted mail ballots,” San Mateo County’s Chief Elections Officer & Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Mark Church said.
“Those interested in casting their ballot during the early voting period have the option to vote on an electronic voting machine or by paper ballot at our Voting Centers,” he said.
The Voting Centers for the November Election are located at:
Registration & Elections Division, 40 Tower Road, San Mateo
555 County Center, First Floor, Redwood City
Hours of operation for the two Voting Centers are as follows:
Monday, October 7 to Monday, November 4: (Weekdays) 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 2: 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday, November 5 (Election Day): 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The early voting period also marks the first day that Vote by Mail ballots will be sent out to those registered as permanent or one-time Vote by Mail voters in the county.
Individuals interested in voting by mail can find an application in the Sample Ballot & Official Voter Information Pamphlet, or online at www.shapethefuture.org.
Vote by Mail voters may use the “Track and Confirm” tool on www.shapetehfuture.org to verify when the ballot materials were mailed and when the Registration & Elections Division received their voted ballot.
Voted mail ballots must be physically received no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 5, in order for the ballots to be counted. Voters may mail in the voted ballot or deliver it in person to a Voting Center or City Hall in the county. As well, on Election Day, voted mail ballots may be dropped off at any active polling place in the county until 8:00 p.m.
