(Victor Valley)– This week the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters has delivered ballots to the post office to be mailed to all registered voters in the County. Look for it in your mailbox!
One of the best things about this year’s 2020 Presidential General Election is choice – not only who to vote for, but how and where to vote.
“Voters in our County have long embraced voting by mail in past elections, but for this Presidential Election, there are other options,” said Registrar of Voters Bob Page. “And best of all, these options are all available now so you can avoid long lines at a polling place on Election Day, November 3.”
Whether you prefer mail, drop-off or in-person, here are the details about early voting. All of this and more can be found on the Registrar of Voters website.
- Mail ballots – On October 5, ballots began to be mailed to San Bernardino County registered voters. Once received, you can cast your voted mail ballot with a pre-paid envelope in the mail, at an early vote site, at ballot drop-box location, or at any polling place.
- Early vote sites – An early vote site is a location where a voter may pick up or cast a mail ballot. The Registrar of Voters office, located at 777 East Rialto Avenue in San Bernardino, will operate as an early vote site beginning October 5. An additional five sites will be open from October 26 to 30.
- Ballot drop box locations – Beginning October 6, voters can choose from 70 secure ballot drop box locations throughout the county to cast their vote. Ballot drop-boxes are bolted to the ground and protected.
And in case you’re dedicated to the tradition of voting in person, you can still choose to vote early at your assigned polling place. The County’s 210 polling locations will be open this year from Saturday, October 31 through Tuesday, November 3 and details can be found on our website or on the back of your Voter Information Guide.
As you prepare to vote, remember, it’s “Your Ballot. Vote Safe. Vote Early.”
