Voters can vote early today at elections offices


The San Mateo County Elections Office invites voters to vote early -- by mail or at elections offices in Redwood City or San Mateo.

Voters can vote Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the elections office at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo or in Redwood City at 555 County Center (corner of Middlefield Road and Bradford Street).

Chief Elections Officer Warren Slocum said free half-hour parking is being offered at the Redwood City office to help make early voting easier. There are 12 free parking spaces in front of 555 County Center and five free parking spaces along Middlefield Road reserved for voting, he said.

12 half-hour spaces?

When we went to vote there were 250 people in line and it took 90 minutes.

Why did it take so long? The idiots running the election only had four voting machines for non-handicapped voters.

There's never any wait at my polling place at the First Baptist Church on Middle Ave. in Menlo Park. I'm really interested to see if it's unusually busy tomorrow.
