If you’re worried about voting by mail or in person this year, there are 17 drop boxes around Oakland that you can use any time of day or night until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3rd. The contents of these boxes are collected directly by the Alameda County Registrar of Voters office. Just don’t forget to sign the back of your return envelope before you put it in the box!
You don’t have to stick to the drop boxes in Oakland either; the Alameda County elections website lists dozens of other locations across the county, and they’re all fine to use if you’re registered to vote here.
