Voting: Your Right, Your Responsiblity

Primary elections are just around the corner, Tuesday June 7th. Our last county election was all vote by mail yet that may not ensure that your ballot has been mailed to you for this election. We have heard from several of our ‘mail in voter’ neighbors that they have not yet receive their ballots, even though they had registered as mail in voter. At the same time  other neighbors have already voted and mailed their ballots back in.

One reason a ballot may not have come to you is you may be on ‘inactive status’. Perhaps you didn’t vote in the past few elections or have moved and have not updated your voting information. Another neighbor, who had not yet received their ballot, was told by the San Mateo County Registrar they were put on inactive status “because a piece of mail we mailed you last year was returned by the post office.” We have to ask how many registered voters are not receiving ballots? And what of those mailed in, do they all reach the Registrar’s office, are they counted, do they make a difference?
