Residents can save postage and time with this vote-by-mail program
Contra Costa residents will find it easier to vote in the upcoming November 6th General Election, as the Contra Costa Elections Office and City Clerks countywide are providing convenient Vote By Mail drop off locations, prior to and on Election Day.
The secure drop-off boxes will be in place at Contra Costa city halls, the County Administration Building in Martinez and some select community centers and libraries, starting the week of October 15 – just days after voters receive their permanent vote-by-mail ballots.
A full list of drop-box locations is available at https://www.cocovote.us/ballot-drop-off/.
The City of Richmond’s drop-box is located at 450 Civic Center Plaza, 3rd Floor, Suite 300.
The distinguishable boxes will be available during normal business hours. Postage is not required with the drop-off box service.
Contra Costa voters can drop their ballot at any location, regardless of where they live. Staff members will have the Contra Costa County’s new and always-popular “I Voted” stickers available for those who drop off their ballots.
“We are excited to work with our city and community partners along with the Contra Costa County Library to be able to offer voters this opportunity,” said Joe Canciamilla, Contra Costa Registrar of Voters. “We urge voters to take advantage of this service.”
Ballots must be postmarked on or before November 6th. Ballots may also be dropped off between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm at the Contra Costa Elections Office in Martinez, located at 555 Escobar Street, or at any polling place on Election Day.
