DROP OFF VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOTS 24 HOURS A DAY IN DOWNTOWN BERKELEY

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, February 11, 2020) - Use a secure drop box in downtown Berkeley to turn in your vote-by-mail ballot anytime, day or night, until 8pm on election day.

The 24-hour ballot box is just one block from BART at 2180 Milvia Street, in front of the Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Building. No postage is needed when you submit a ballot at the drop box.

The Alameda County Registrar of Voters picks up ballots from the drop box every day. The last pickup will be 8pm on Tuesday, March 3.

Make sure your vote is counted by:

  • using the return envelope provided
  • signing the back of your envelope

You can also turn in ballots at any polling location on election day, or at any of two dozen other drop boxes in Alameda County.

For those who are looking to vote at the polls, remember to register to vote by Feb. 18 and learn about conditional ballots for same-day registration.

Berkeley ballot measures

You can learn more about the three Berkeley-specific measures on the March 3 ballot,  Measure E Measure G, and  Measure H on Voters Edge California, a non-partisan website that provides the full text of the proposed legislation, the Alameda County Counsel's impartial analysis, and published voter guide arguments for and against each measure.
