Election Day: Ballots must arrive by 8 p.m. tonight


To be counted, ballots in the all-mail May 3 election must arrive at the San Mateo County Elections Office by 8 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, May 3).

Voters can vote in person at a county elections office: 40 Tower Road in San Mateo, or 555 County Government Center in Redwood City.

Mail-in ballots may be dropped off at any city hall in the county during regular business hours.

All voters in the county can vote to fill the District 1 seat on the county Board of Supervisors, vacated when Mark Church was elected chief elections officer, assessor and recorder. The candidate who receives the most votes will be elected to fill the remainder of his term, which ends in January 2013. See story, " Budget crisis top issue in supervisor's race."

In the Ravenswood City School District, Measure B asks voters whether to renew an existing tax of $98 a year per parcel and to add $98, bringing the total annual tax to $196 per parcel. If passed, the measure would generate about $1.2 million for the district. See story, "Ravenswood faces critical parcel tax decision."
