The Alameda County Registrar of Voters has set up specially-designed and secure drop-boxes in each of the county's 14 incorporated cities to accommodate voters who wish to drop off their Vote-By-Mail ballots in today's Primary election.
The ballot box in Pleasanton was set up earlier outside City Hall.
The drop-boxes, where voters can drop their ballots without paying postage, will be available to receive Vote-By-Mail ballots right up until the close of the polls at 8 p.m. tonight.
Vote-By-Mail Ballots submitted via the drop-boxes or the "Drop Stop" must be sealed in their Vote-By-Mail envelopes and signed by the voter on the signature line on the outside of the envelope.
In addition, the Registrar has set up a drive-through "Ballot Drop Stop" outside the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse on Fallon Street in Oakland to allow voters to drop off Vote-By-Mail ballots without even having to leave their vehicles.
The "Drop Stop" will operate all day today, closing automatically at 8 p.m.
