Early Voting Options Available for Voters with Disabilities
A Service to Voters with Disabilities
November 8, 2016 Presidential General Election
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.
If you have questions or to schedule one of the options listed above, please contact the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division at 1.650.312.5222 or email@example.com.
On September 23rd, the San Bruno Branch Office held a ribbon-cutting mixer highlighting the newly designed office. We had San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane in attendance (seen above cutting the red ribbon) as well as the Chamber of Commerce and a number of staff.

While disability has been gaining attention throughout the course of this election cycle, I believe more can be done to focus on key issues that affect the disability community. As such, my goal in creating this video was to hold creators of all political ads and all who are involved in campaigns accountable to include disability rights in a meaningful way in their messaging. We need to be talking about substantial topics that affect all people with disabilities, especially people whose disability identity intersects with other minority identities – issues including employment, affordable and accessible housing, Social Security, mental health care, the incarceration of people with disabilities, subminimum wage… as you can tell, there are so many crucial issues
There is so much at stake for people with disabilities this election, and so while this video is meant to hold people accountable, it is also intended to propel conversations and encourage both candidates and voters with and without disabilities to recognize the importance of disability issues. It’s time to ask the questions and have the conversations about disability that really matter
