Those who regularly vote by mail shouldn't notice much difference in the upcoming election, but others may have to make some adjustments, as most local polling places will no longer be open.
Voters may drop off completed ballots in drop-off boxes located in each community or mail them in the provided postage-paid envelope.
Local drop-off locations, open during business hours, are Menlo Park City Hall, 701 Laurel St.; Atherton Town Hall, 91 Ashfield Road; Woodside Town Hall, 2955 Woodside Road; and Portola Valley Town Hall, 765 Portola Road.
The nearest 24-hour outdoor drop-off locations are the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division, 40 Tower Road in San Mateo, and the East Palo Alto Government Center at 2415 University Ave.
