Voters planning to mail in their ballots for the Menlo Park City School District or the Portola Valley School District parcel tax election need to act soon: Ballots must be received by San Mateo County election officials by 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 4.
In the Portola Valley election, Measure D calls for a four-year, $168 annual parcel tax.
Measure C in the Menlo Park election calls for a seven-year, $178 annual parcel tax.
Both require a two-thirds yes vote in order to pass.
Voters in the two school districts also have the option to drop off their voted ballots at their city hall -- 91 Ashfield Road in Atherton, 701 Laurel St. in Menlo Park, and 765 Portola Road in Portola Valley -- before they close Tuesday, May 4.
Ballots can also dropped off up to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 4, at the Elections Office at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo.
Voters can go the San Mateo County Elections Web site shapethefuture.org, and click on the "Track and Confirm" button to confirm that the elections office received their voted mail ballot, according to Warren Slocum, the county's chief elections officer.
Results will be posted on www.AlmanacNews.com, starting at 8:05 p.m. Tuesday, May 4.
