Vote-by-mail ballots can still be picked up

-A +A

To ensure sufficient processing time, the last day by law that the Office of Elections could mail a voter-requested vote-by-mail ballot was Oct.30, 2012. You may pick up a vote-by-mail ballot in the office until Election Day, Nov. 6.

 
The Office of Elections is at 2956 Richardson Drive, in the DeWitt Center in Auburn. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Election Day hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
 
To provide better service to voters, the Placer County Office of Elections will be open the two weekends prior to the election. Weekend hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 3 and 4. Elections staff will be available on these days to process vote-by-mail
requests and issue vote-by-mail ballots over the counter.
 
Voters may call (530) 886-5650 or toll-free (800) 824-8683 with questions regarding the upcoming election.
 
“This department is always looking for ways to be more accessible to the voters of the county," said Jim McCauley, Placer County clerk-recorder-registrar of voters. "That is why I began weekend service more than 15 years ago. "We hope weekend
hours enable even more people to take advantage of vote-by-mail voting and have their voices heard.”
 
Voters can drop off their voted ballots one week prior to the election. Signage will be at the ballot drop-off locations so voters know where to drop their ballots inside the locations. The locations that have been selected are:
