Joseph E. Canciamilla, the County Clerk-Recorder and Registrar of Voters, reminds voters that 5:00 pm Tuesday, March 10, 2015 is the deadline for the Elections Office to receive a vote-by-mail ballot request for the March 17, 2015 7th State Senatorial District Special Primary Election.

The 7th Senatorial District includes voters in East Contra Costa, the Lamorinda and San Ramon Valley areas, Concord, Walnut Creek, and Clayton. To view a map of the 7th Senatorial District, go to http://sd07.senate.ca.gov/district-map.

Any registered voter within Contra Costa County may apply for a vote-by-mail ballot. A vote-by-mail application is available on the last page of your Sample Ballot Booklet. Vote-by-mail ballots may also be requested by emailing voter.services@vote.cccounty.us. Email requests must include name, date of birth, residence address, and mailing address (if different).

Vote-by-mail applications are valid if they are received in the Elections Office by March 10, 2015. Election officials encourage voters to submit their application as soon as possible to allow sufficient time to receive their ballots, vote, and return them on or before March 17th.

Voters may also visit the Elections Office, located at 555 Escobar Street in Martinez, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm weekdays through Election Day to vote in person or to drop off their ballot. The office will also be open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, March 14, 2015.

Voters may also use official drop-off boxes, located inside City Halls for vote-by-mail ballots. Starting the week of February 23, 2015, Antioch, Brentwood, Concord, Danville, Lafayette, Moraga, Oakley, Orinda, Pittsburg, San Ramon, and Walnut Creek will have drop-off boxes available during normal business hours.

Any newly naturalized citizen (after March 2, 2015) may register and vote between March 3, 2015 and March 17, 2015 at the Elections Office. Each new citizen must bring their Certificate of Naturalization.
