With 90 degree or higher temperatures, it is hard to think of anything but enjoying the weekend posted in front of an air conditioner or outdoors beneath the blazing sun at one of the many events going on around the Peninsula.
Between San Carlos’ Hometown Days, Burlingame ‘s Day on the Green, San Mateo’s Immigrant Day Festival, and Bay to Breakers, there is definitely no shortage of activities for this weekend. But don’t let the excitement of the weekend cause you to forget about a very important deadline coming up on Monday.
Monday, May 19, marks the last day to register or re-register to vote in the June 3 Statewide Direct Primary Election. If you are a new voter, have moved, changed your name, or wish to change your party affiliation, now is the time to register to vote.
Want to check your voter registration status? Visit the Elections Office website at http://www.shapethefuture.org/voters/voter_status.asp. The registration status page will tell you whether or not you are registered to vote, and if you are, will tell you where your polling place is located. Keep in mind, however, that polling place locations are selected about 40 days before each election. They may change even as late as up to the day of the election. Please check the site again before going to the polls. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
