Hand deliver vote-by-mail ballots if not in mail already

May 28, 2014

SOLANO COUNTY – Voters are encouraged to hand deliver their ballots for Tuesday's election if their vote-by-mail ballot isn’t mailed by Thursday, May 29.

Ballots must be physically received by the Registrar of Voters office by 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, to be part of the official count.  A postmark indicating the ballot was sent before Tuesday does not constitute a valid ballot, according to State election laws.

"Your vote is too important to take the risk," said Assistant Registrar of Voters John Gardner.

Voters have several options when dropping off their vote-by-mail ballots, including:

-- Anytime between now and June 3 at the Registrar’s Office, located on the second floor of the County Administration Center, 675 Texas Street, Fairfield

-- Anytime between now and June 3 at any City Clerk’s office in the community

-- Curb-side on the corner of Union Avenue and Texas Street, Fairfield on June 2-3

-- At any Solano County polling location on Election Day, June 3

The Registrar also reminds vote-by-mail voters to sign their name in the signature box on the back of the ballot envelope.  Voters should not sign the actual ballot.

People going to the polls to vote should check their sample ballot to find the address of their polling location.  Some polling locations have changed since last election. Voters can also look up their polling location at www.solanocounty.com/elections
