Voters in the Cupertino Union School District can drop off their ballots this Saturday at Cupertino City Hall for the May 6th special election.
The Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters will be operating a Drive-Thru Ballot Drop-Off site in the parking lot of the Cupertino City Hall from 10 am to 3 pm this Saturday, April 26th, and again next Saturday, May 3rd.
The center will be designed so voters can hand their ballots through their car windows to the Registrar’s staff without parking or getting out of their cars, similar to a “drive-thru” at a restaurant.
“The ‘drive-thru’ design makes it quick and easy for voters to return their ballots,” said Registrar of Voters Shannon Bushey. “We set up the site in Cupertino so voters who live in the district can return their ballots on Saturday when it’s convenient for them without making a special trip to our office in San Jose.”
This is a special mail ballot election with one contest, a parcel tax measure for Cupertino Union School District. A total of 64,628 voters are registered in the district and eligible to participate in the election. The last day to register to vote was April 21st.
Because this is as an all-mail ballot election, there will not be polling places on Election Day. Instead, all registered voters in the district were automatically sent a ballot, and no postage is required to return the ballot by mail.
All voted ballots must be received by the Registrar’s Office no later than 8:00 pm on Election Day, May 6th. Postmarks are not accepted.
For added convenience, the Registrar’s Office has ballot drop boxes at six city halls, available during normal business hours: Cupertino, Los Altos, San Jose, Santa Clara, Saratoga, and Sunnyvale. There is also a drop box inside the County Government Center at 70 West Hedding Street and a 24-hour drop box in the parking lot of the Registrar of Voters’ Office at 1555 Berger Drive in San Jose.
Voters can cast a ballot in-person at the Registrar’s Office during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and on Election Day from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.
