From the Richmond City Clerk:
Residents can save postage and time with this vote-by-mail program
Contra Costa residents will find it easier to vote in the upcoming March 3rd Presidential Primary Election, as the Contra Costa Elections Office and City Clerks countywide provide 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, senior centers and libraries starting the week of February 10th – just days after voters receive their permanent vote-by-mail ballots.
New to the drop off program is the addition of a dozen permanent drop off boxes that will be located outdoors. These secure boxes will be conveniently available to voters beyond normal business hours, including nights and weekends.
A full list of drop-box locations is available at https://www.cocovote.us/ballot-drop-off/.
The City of Richmond’s permanent drop off box is located between 450 and 440 Civic Center Plaza, under the overpass in front of the Council Chamber’s parking lot.
Voters may also drop off ballots to A secure drop-off box in the City Clerk’s Office, 450 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 300 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The distinguishable boxes inside buildings will be available during normal business hours. Postage is not required for any Vote By Mail return method.
Contra Costa voters can drop their ballots at any location, regardless of where they live. City Clerk staff members will have the Contra Costa County’s new and always-popular “I Voted” stickers available for those who drop off their ballots.
Ballots must be postmarked or dropped off on or before March 3rd. 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.
