Additional postage required for vote-by-mail ballots
Submitted By Guy Ashley
The Alameda County Registrar of Voters reminds voters that additional postage is required to mail in Vote-By-Mail ballots in all parts of the County because voters are being asked to complete multiple ballot cards for the November 6, 2012 Presidential General Election.
Voters are reminded that they can avoid paying postage by dropping off their Vote-By-Mail ballots at several locations that will receive ballots until the close of the polls at 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2012. These locations include:
Almost 800 polling places will operate in Alameda County on Election Day. Voters can visit the Registrar of Voters website, www.acgov.org/rov, to find a list of polling places and locate the most convenient for depositing their ballots.
At one of the three special ballot mail-boxes in Oakland: in the lobby of the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse, 1225 Fallon Street; outside the Courthouse on the northeast corner of 12th and Oak Streets; or outside the Alameda County Administration building at 1221 Oak Street.
At the City Clerks' offices in Berkeley, Dublin, Fremont, Livermore, Union City, Alameda, Hayward, San Leandro, Emeryville and Pleasanton.
Please note that Vote-By-Mail ballots dropped-off at any of the above locations must be sealed in their yellow or light green Vote-By-Mail envelopes and signed by the voter on the signature line on the outside of the envelope.
For more information, contact the Registrar of Voters at (510) 272-6973.
