(Redwood City, CA) Mark Church, San Mateo County Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder and Chief Elections Officer, announced the release of the Department’s new website, www.smcacre.org. The website deploys the newest cutting-edge technology in an attractive, highly organized and easily searchable format. A powerful responsive website design allows the public to use their PCs, tablets and mobile devices to access information and services at their convenience 24/7.
“In this rapidly changing technological age, it is essential that citizens have real-time access to the vast array of information, services and data the Department of the Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder and Elections (ACRE) provides,” stated Church. “I personally invite the community to explore this new and exciting website.” Church added.
ACRE’s website is compatible with many modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE, and Edge). The site increases accessibility to visually impaired and disabled persons by adhering to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Additionally, two prominent features are Google Translator, which is offered in ten languages, along with an online search tool to quickly locate information.
Previously, ACRE was represented by two websites, www.smcare.org and www.shapethefuture.org. The new ACRE website combines the content of both of these sites. The prior websites’ URLs have now been redirected to the www.smcacre.org address.
Along with the new ACRE URL, smcacre.org, the email domain for Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder and Elections staff has been updated to smcacre.org. The prior email domain, smcare.org, will remain active as well.
Questions regarding the new website may be directed to Jaleen Lee, Senior Graphics Specialist, at 650.599.1376 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
