DALY CITY – California Secretary of State Alex Padilla will co-host a public event on the changes coming to voting in San Mateo County in 2018 as the Voter’s Choice Act is adopted. The event will be co-hosted by the offices of Senator Scott Wiener, Assemblymember Phil Ting, and San Mateo County Chief Elections officer Mark Church.

This event will help voters learn how the California Voter’s Choice Act will make it easier for when, where, and how they can cast a ballot. This new election model will provide greater flexibility and convenience by: mailing every voter a ballot, expanding in-person early voting, and allowing voters to cast a ballot at any vote center within their county. A mock vote center will be open during the event to illustrate the ease of completing and returning a ballot.
