The San Mateo County Elections Office is giving demonstrations of the new eSlate electronic voting systems at community venues.
A Menlo Park demonstration is set from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, at Crane Place, 1331 Crane St.
In the Nov. 7 election, voters will have the option of voting an electronic or a paper ballot. While the county is converting to electronic voting, most voters will vote a paper ballot this November, election officials said.
Next year, in a series of smaller local elections, electronic voting will be fully introduced, they said chief elections official Warren Slocum.
To schedule a demonstration for your community group, go online to the eSlate Learning Center -- Web Link -- or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Jackie Coates at (650) 363-1884.
