June 6, 2017 Election in Atherton

The San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division wants to be sure that registered San Mateo County voters with disabilities are aware of the various options available to help them vote during the 29-day period leading up to each election, including the June 6, 2017
Town of Atherton Special Mail Ballot Election. During this early voting period, registered voters with disabilities may participate in the standard Vote by Mail program, which allows voters to receive a ballot by mail and return that ballot by mail or in person. In addition, registered voters with disabilities have three other options:

  • They may request to have a Vote by Mail paper ballot personally delivered to the voter’s home at a convenient time by Elections Division staff, who will assist them in marking and returning the ballot.
  • They may request that Elections Division staff bring an accessible version of the County’s electronic voting machine to a convenient location such as the voter’s home for the voter to cast an electronic ballot privately and independently. This system includes audio ballot reading technology, uniquely shaped large buttons with Braille descriptions, a low height to permit wheelchair-based use, and use of adaptive interface devices such as sip-and-puff and tactile input switches to control the input. The Elections Division staff will set up the equipment and be available to assist the voter during the process.
  • They may request that the Elections Division staff arrange free transportation for the voter to and from the Voting Center during the early voting period, where the County’s accessible electronic voting machine may be used by the voter.
These options are generally available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week during the
early voting period starting 29 days before the election. Voters who contact us Monday
through Thursday will receive service the following day or sooner. Voters who contact us
on Fridays can schedule an appointment for the following Monday or sooner if possible.

Special accommodations can be made for service outside established hours.

To use any of the options listed above, registered San Mateo County voters may contact
the Registration & Elections Division at 1.650.312.5222 no later than the day before
the desired voting date in order to schedule assistance. (Please note that there is a
deadline for enrolling in the standard Vote by Mail program or to register to vote, but
voters who are already registered in San Mateo County may request the three options
listed above during the entire early voting period.)

If you have questions or to schedule one of the options listed above, please contact the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division at 1.650.312.5222 or
