Don't forget to exercise your right to VOTE in the statewide June 5th primary election. All elections are important! You can learn more about your voting options (mail or in-person) here on the County's web page or call 650-312-5222.
In summary, there are three ways to vote in the June 2018 primary:
1) Mail your ballot now (easiest and quickest way, no postage necessary)
2) Drop off your ballot anytime between now and June 5th at Burlingame City Hall, 501 Primrose Road
3) Vote in person at one of the County's voting centers up to 30 days before the election. Burlingame City Hall is a voting center that will be open on June 2, 3, 4, and 5th. Note your regular neighborhood polling stations (e.g. local elementary school, community room, church hall) will not be open on June 5th.
