Library drop off will occur starting 3:00 PM on Friday, May 11, and will end at 12:00 PM on Friday, June 1. This partnership with the local libraries offers our community members another way to their VBM votes in. "Library ballot ...boxes offer the community a convenient and secure way to return their ballots without having to pay for postage on their ballot", states Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Clerk/Recorder/Assessor and Registrar of Voters.
So, if you'd like to save the TWO stamps needed to submit your VBM ballot, take your ballot to the local library!
Jesse Salinas, Registrar of Voters, recently spoke at the California State Assembly Budget hearing to advocate for California to appropriate $134M to counties in order to update voting equipment. Jesse was representing both Yolo County and the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials (CACEO). We will hear about the final decision regarding these funds in the coming months. Yolo County's portion of the $134M, is yet to be determined but potentially could be between $1M to $2M.
