Do you still have a vote-by-mail ballot you requested weeks or months ago from the Yolo County Elections Office?
At this point, it’s too late to mail it to ensure delivery by Election Day on Tuesday. So, elections officials recommend that you take your ballot to your neighborhood polling place, or to the Elections Office at 625 Court St., Room B-05, in Woodland. If you’re not sure where your polling place is, visit www.yoloelections.org.
Elections officials estimate that 15 to 20 percent of vote-by-mail ballots will be turned in on Election Day. A fairly high voter turnout is expected — the result of a hard-fought presidential election; several statewide propositions that have generated a substantial amount of voter interest; spirited school board contests in Davis, Woodland and West Sacramento; and a school parcel tax measure in Davis.
Just over 75 percent of Yolo County voters cast ballots in the historic November 2008 election, with turnout in Davis running over 80 percent.
