Absentee Vote for April 14th City Council election

What: Event to register for absentee mail-in ballot.
When: Saturday and Sunday, March 21- 22 from 10:00-12:00.
Where : Frying Pan Restaurant on 10th and Cleveland. 

Registration forms provided. Bring Photo ID. Pat Starr will be there to notarize your form.

Candidates that are on the ballot will NOT be at this event. This is an opportunity for you to get a mail in ballot for the election.

They will make sure that they only help one person at a time to ensure social distancing. It will only take a few minutes.

At this point, it is unsure if the legislature will vote on March 30 to postpone the election, so we need to find safe ways to vote in case the corona virus spreads over the next month at a rapid rate. I’m hoping the legislature will postpone the municipal elections across the state until June, but there are no guarantees they will do that. This is the safest and most prudent way to absentee vote.

You can also go online;

If you’d like to have mail-in absentee ballots sent to you, you can sign up using this form: FORM

Print it out, fill it in, and either have it notarized  or include a copy of your photo ID when you send it to your County Auditor’s office.

Why don’t we open drive through voting? We use paper ballots. Why not set up drive thru voting stations in the mall parking lots? Set up and and educate for drive thru voting stations over the next week. Rent tents and office trailers if necessary.

1. Voters hold up their ID’s to their closed vehicle windows.
2. a poll worker retrieves the correct ballot and hands it to them through their car window.
3. Voters needs to bring their own black pen or pencil and completes the ballot in their car.
4. Voter pulls up to the correct ballot box (indicated on ballot) and slides it into the slot as they would in a polling place, without leaving their car.

Polling volunteers can take turns working the stations. Rather than having all polling worker work on voting day, they could take turns over 20 days.

We can do this people!

So I guess what you are saying George Jetson is that if everyone had a car, money for gas, car insurance and and driver’s license they can vote? Doesn’t that go against their 2nd Amendment rights? LOL.

So how do people get to polling places on any other election? I haven’t seen many bicycles parked outside ballot boxes.

Your all bitch but no solutions.

BTW. Any moron knows the 2nd amendment is right to bear arms…. I’m sure you’ll edit that out.

My reference to the 2nd Amendment was a snark on people who think being able to legally own a gun is our most sacred amendment. I have never owned a gun and am not lesser American because of it. That was my point. Actually, I do have a solution that would be safer and actually less expensive than how we currently do elections, and we would have a higher voter turnout. A reader sent me the suggestion the other day, and with my experience in printing and direct mail I crunched the numbers. I figure it would cheaper or even less expensive to mail every registered voter in SF a ballot with a postage paid envelope for return then to have a precinct election. And instead of a copy of your ID or a notary and simple affadavit signature would suffice.
