Voting on Saturday. Who ever heard of that?
It’s the best kept secret. You can vote in person on Saturday at the Elections Office between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (at least that’s true on the two Saturdays before the election).
So the real question is why wait until Tuesday? Literally. There will be no waiting. There will be no line. There will be plenty of eSlates and plenty of parking. Plus, you can take all the time you want to vote on the eSlate and no one will notice. (The real secret is that it’s a snap to use.)
Here’s an idea. Swing by you favorite coffee place, get a cuppa joe to go, and buzz into the nearest Elections Office to cast your ballot. There are two locations: one at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo, the other at 555 County Center in Redwood City.
When others are remembering to vote vote on Tuesday, scrambling around to get to the polls before work or fighting traffic as they head home, you’ll have already voted. You’ll be certain your vote will count because you weren’t in the throes of everyday life hoping to get to the polls before they close. Oh, what a feeling!
