The City Clerk’s Office announced that the City Elections Center (131 N. Isabel Street, Glendale, CA 91206) will be open to issue emergency vote-by-mail ballots to individuals who wish to vote prior to Election Day and will not be able to make it to their regular polling place on April 4, 2017. City Elections Staff will also be accepting vote-by-mail ballots at the same location between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The purpose of this initiative is to give voters multiple options to make their choices prior to Election Day, and mirrors similar recent efforts by counties throughout the State of California.
“Our goal is to make voting simpler and easier for everyone who wants to vote, and that includes keeping our Elections Center open on the weekend before Election Day,” said Ardy Kassakhian, City Clerk and the City’s Elections Official. “This is a first in Glendale history and we are excited to see the results.”
One of the goals of this process is to accept more ballots which can be counted in the Election Day tally, as well as, minimize the number of provisional ballots that are issued at the polls on Election Day. With more ballots turned in, staff can work on providing a more accurate and final count of ballots cast and votes for candidates in a efficient and timely manner.
