THERE IS NOT MUCH TIME LEFT…

There is not much time left to cast your vote in what may be the most significant American Presidential Election of our lifetimes.

The election deadline is November 3rd at 8:00 pm.

If you have not voted yet and you still have your ballot, your options are:

  1.        Mail you ballot NOW. Yet…will it be delivered on time?
  2.    Drop your ballot into a Voting Drop Box.
  3.    Deliver your ballot to the office of the Registrar of   Voters in your County.
  4.        Vote in person.

I have already voted. I elected #2 and I urge you to do the same. This is my routine and has been for several years. Hand-delivering one’s own ballot instills voters with justified confidence that their vote has been cast, counted and isn’t lost in the ether. Additionally, drop boxes can be available around the clock, allowing voters to cast their ballots whenever it is convenient. During this pandemic, when avoiding crowds is key for protecting public health, more time to vote equals more space to vote safely.

Ballot Box

If you are paranoid about the safety and security of your ballet and want to make sure that your vote counts, go ahead and drive to the Registrar of Voters office in your county or vote in person.

For those for who plan to use the drop boxes, you will find them conveniently located near you. In the Tri-Cities area of Fremont, Newark and Union City, I suggest that you do an internet search for the drop box near you. You will find plenty. I have used the one at Fremont City Hall in the past. This year, I used the drop box at the Newark Library. Fremont, Newark and Union City have numerous locations where you can safely and conveniently drop off your ballot.

If you wish to go the Registrar of Voters office in Oakland and use that drop box, it is at 1225 Fallon St., Oakland.

Or…

Do an internet search for an in-person voting location near you.

And if you want an experience of a lifetime, go the Oakland Coliseum to cast your vote...Oakland Colesium is a Voting Location

 

But…VOTE!

 

And…track you ballot at https://acvote.ballottrax.net/voter/

Dolores and I voted early by mail in Maryland. We received email notices when the ballots were received and when our votes were counted.

I used a local dropbox only because I did not want to risk something happening on voting day that would keep me away from voting in person.  I received an email confirming my ballot was received and my vote was counted.

Looks like 145M Americans received your notice, John! What a great turn-out in this year's election. We vote early, in person and had zero wait this year - in fact, we waited much longer in 2016 than we did this year!

They should definitely move quickly if they want to do it on the goods, so to speak

And now California is in the midst of another election in which a decision will be made about recalling our Governor.
