With the vote-by-mail option becoming more and more popular for residents throughout Contra Costa County, San Ramon Valley government agencies are working to make voting as secure and convenient as possible and will be providing ballot drop-off boxes for residents.
For voters who do not want to send their ballots through their traditional postal method, residents in Danville, San Ramon and everywhere else in Contra Costa County can now drop off their mail-in ballots for the March 3 election at secure locations throughout the region.
“We are excited to offer voters this opportunity,” Danville city clerk Marie Sunseri said in a statement, “and we urge voters to take advantage of this service.”
Danville’s secure drop-off box is available to residents 24 hours per day and can be found at the Sycamore Park and Ride, near the intersection of Sycamore Valley Road and Camino Ramon -- postage is not required with the drop-off box service.
While San Ramon’s drop-off box will be located at the San Ramon City Hall rotunda, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road, during regular business hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Ballots may also be dropped off at any polling place on Election Day, or sent in through the mail as long as they are postmarked on or before March 3.
For more information about voting, residents can call the Contra Costa County Elections Division at 335-7800 or visit the Elections Office website at www.cocovote.us.
