The San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division wants to be sure that registered San Mateo County voters with disabilities are aware of the various options available to help them vote during the 29-day period leading up to each election, including the November 8, 2016 Presidential General Election. During this early voting period, registered voters with disabilities may participate in the standard Vote by Mail program, which allows voters to receive a ballot by mail and return that ballot by mail or in person. In addition, registered voters with disabilities have three other options:
These options are generally available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week during the early voting period starting 29 days before the election. Special accommodations can be made for service outside established hours.
To use any of the options listed above, registered San Mateo County voters may contact the Registration & Elections Division at 1.650.312.5222 at least 24-hours in advance in order to schedule assistance. (Please note that there is a deadline for enrolling in the standard Vote by Mail program or to register to vote, but voters who are already registered in San Mateo County may request the three options listed above during the entire early voting period.)
These options only apply to San Mateo County registered voters. Other voters should contact their county elections official for assistance.
