March is already just around the corner, and while Spring is still a month away, the Spring Voting session is getting under way. With the Special Primary Election set for March 17th, residents who have elected to receive a permanent vote-by-mail ballot will begin receiving them next week. The option to have your ballot sent to you by mail offers convenience and for many, better opportunity to take the time and understand what is being voted on while completing a ballot. But do you always remember to mail your ballot by the deadline? Danville says not to worry about missing the date. There will now be a convenient “CoCo Vote-N-Go” drop off box for you to use at the Danville Town Office.
You can drop off your ballot beginning next week during regular business hours, from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm weekdays. You can even pick up an “I Voted” sticker to show off your pride for getting your vote turned in. The Town of Danville is excited to be able to offer the drop box for residents, in the hope that the convenience of the box will help bring out more voters overall. The town is the latest in Contra Costa County to get a ballot drop-off box. San Ramon, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek also have drop boxes available at the City Clerk’s Office in each location. There will be regular collections of the ballots in each box, done by County elections officials, so you can rest assured your vote will be safe and counted.
If you are not registered to vote by mail and would like to set it up, there is still a little time left before the next election. Per county guidelines for voter registration, you have until 15 calendar days prior to an election to opt for the permanent or one-time-only mail options. For this next election, you have until March 2nd to get your registration for mail-in ballots completed. However you choose to vote is up to you; making your vote more convenient to turn in is one more way that life is made better in Danville.
