This year’s election may feel a little different than previous years because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are still many ways to cast your ballot easily and safely. The best thing to do is plan ahead! Look into all your options and make a plan for how you will vote for the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Register to Vote

First, make sure you’re register to vote online at or with a paper registration card, available at Town Hall; call (650) 997-8300 or email for pick up.

Check your Registration

Already registered? Double check your registration is correct through San Mateo County Elections: or call their office at (650) 312-5222.

Remember, the last day to register to vote is October 19, 2020.  But if you miss the deadline, don’t worry! You can still cast a conditional ballot by voting in person.

Vote by Mail

This year, ALL registered California voters will be mailed an official ballot. Be on the lookout for your ballot starting in early October. Completed ballots can be mailed in via USPS or can be dropped off at any official Ballot Drop Box in San Mateo County, like the one right in front of Town Hall!

You can even sign up to get text or email alerts to track your ballot through the voting process by signing up here:
