County offers coastsiders voting options for lost ballots



Dear ——-:

I am writing today on an important election matter and I am asking that you take just a minute or two to
read this important material.

It has come to our attention that you did not receive your June Gubernatorial Primary Election ballot
because of an addressing error. We apologize for that error and we are sending you a replacement
ballot in a separate packet via first class mail on June 4.

Since time is short, we have enclosed a pre-paid USPS overnight mail return envelope in the
replacement ballot packet if you wish to vote by mail. The Elections Office must receive your ballot by
8 p.m. on Election Day, June 8, 2010, in order to be counted.

There are a number of other voting options available to you. You may:

1. Drop off your voted ballot at any City Hall during regular weekday business hours;

2. Drop off your voted ballot at one of our Voting Centers listed below:

San Mateo County Elections Office
40 Tower Road, San Mateo, 94402

San Mateo County Assessor- Clerk-Recorder’s Office

3. Drop off your voted ballot at Coastside Fire Station #41 this weekend at 531 Obispo Road
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 5 or Sunday, June 6;

4. Drop off your voted ballot on Election Day at any polling place in the county from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.; or

5. Mail your voted ballot using the enclosed USPS Express envelope at a post office no later than
4 p.m., June 7, 2010 (to reach the Elections Office the following day before the 8 p.m. deadline).

6. If for some reason your replacement ballot packet does not arrive, please go to one of the polling
places in El Granada and vote a provisional ballot in person on Election Day between 7 a.m. and
8 p.m.

Granada Sanitary District, 504 Avenue Alhambra
El Granada School, 400 Santiago Street

Thank you for your prompt attention to this important election matter. If you have any questions, please
