The following press release was issued by the City of Point Arena
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 Point Arena Veteran’s Hall/City Hall Drive-Thru Dropbox to the north of the building, 451 School Street, Point Arena, 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.
Ballots will be batched and counted several times a day by the Deputy City Clerk and another City employee 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.
Three Point Arena City Council seats will be on the ballot, with Scott Ignacio and Olivia Ford qualifying to run and Eric Dahlhoff qualifying to run as a “write-in” candidate for the third seat.
The last day to register-to-vote in the November 3 election is Monday, October 19.
