KPBS launches Voter Hub to assist voters in primary election
Election season is here and KPBS has launched a resource to help voters make sense of the ballot.
Early voting has begun, Registrar of Voters Cynthia Paes said. Starting Monday, voters can drop off their ballots at the more than 120 drop-off locations throughout the county.
Voters can cast their ballots at the Registrar's office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until May 28, when the office will open daily.
If you haven't received your voter pamphlet yet, you should be receiving them this week, Paes said.
"This includes important information about your candidates and contests," she said. "It also goes over your voting options."
Of course, the question is: "Who do you vote for?"
To help voters make an informed choice, KPBS has launched Voter Hub online. Just visit kpbs.org/voterhub. It is also available in Spanish at kpbs.org/guiaelectoral
There, you can enter your address or ZIP code to explore a comprehensive ballot guide with all the candidates and measures in your district.
Once you've made your selections, you can print them, and have them emailed or sent to your phone to help you fill out your ballot. You can also take them with you when you go to the poll.
The Voter Hub has a listing of locations where you can drop off your ballot or vote in person. Of course, you can always mail in your ballot.
"Your ballot must be postmarked on or before election day and received by our office up to seven days after election day to be considered timely," Paes said.
