The following press release was issued by the City of Fort Bragg:
On Monday, October 5, 2020, the Mendocino County Elections Office mailed all registered voters their 2020 General Election ballots. The normal delivery time is five to seven business days, so be sure to monitor your mailbox during this upcoming week.
Completed vote by mail ballots may be dropped off at the utility bill payment slot to the right of the front doors at City Hall, 416 N. Franklin Street, Fort Bragg, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, between now and election day, November 3, 2020. Secure ballot retrieval procedures have been set up for transportation of the ballots from City Hall to the County Elections Office in Ukiah, following strict chain of custody protocols established by the County Registrar of Voters/Elections Official.
City Clerk June Lemos stated, “Ballots will be batched and counted several times a day by two City employees, myself as Elections Official and one other staff member, and maintained in a locked ballot box in a locked and secure location at City Hall until retrieved by the County.” The County will schedule
pickups every other day to start and then every day as the number of ballots dropped off increases closer to Election Day.=
There are no local measures on this ballot, and the incumbent Councilmembers, Will Lee and Bernie Norvell, were appointed to the two open Council seats on August 13 when no other candidates qualified for the election.
