All-Mailed Ballot Election

All-Mailed Ballot Election

The November 3, 2015 Election will be the first all-mailed ballot election conducted in San Mateo County. 41 cities, special districts and school districts in San Mateo County have approved a resolution for an all-mailed ballot election for the upcoming November 3, 2015 Consolidated Municipal, School and Special District Election to be a part of an All-Mail Ballot Pilot Program.

San Mateo County's Pilot Program will provide a unique opportunity for all jurisdictions in the County to increase voter registration and participation while substantially reducing the costs of conducting local elections. Voters will benefit by being able to vote by mail while still having polling place voting options on Election Day.

Voted ballots must be personally mailed or returned by the voter to the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division at 40 Tower Road, San Mateo, or may be personally returned by the voter to the following locations:
  1. Foster City Recreation Center at 650 Shell Boulevard, Foster City;
