Given the pandemic and the threats to our democracy with Trump’s cuts to the post office, we urge you to vote early by October 15th. All registered voters will be sent an absentee ballot automatically to limit COVID exposure. You must register to vote to receive an absentee ballot! You can vote in person or drop off your ballot at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters 1225 Fallon Street, Room G1, Oakland, or put it into one of the official, free 24-hour drop boxes anytime by November 3rd 8pm. If you use a USPS mailbox, postage is free, and it’s critical to vote early.
