As of October 2, 2020, the image above is a partial list of San Diego County’s mail-in ballot drop-off locations.
There are more than 100 locations, and that’s an important thing.
An important thing – and a great thing.
That means that I can bypass these:
And the crisis deliberately caused by these bozos:
Or as this Washington Post article put it so succinctly:
The bozo on the left needs no introduction. The guy in the middle – Steve Mnuchin – was recently described as a “shameless sycophant and obsequious ass-kisser” because he’ll do anything Trump tells him to do, including screw with the Post Office.
And the third guy is Louis DeJoy, multimillionaire big-time Trump crony and donor, handpicked by Trump to be Postmaster General. The more DeJoy assures us that everything will be just swell when the United States Postal Service (USPS) starts handling the avalanche of mail-in ballots…
The more I know that my mail-in ballot isn’t going anywhere near the Post Office.
But it’s up to me to figure out how to get my ballot into the right hands.
And it’s up to you, too.
It’s up to you to find out what your options are – please don’t wait for your local TV news, or your friend or neighbor to tell you.
It’s our ballot, and it’s our job to find out:
My county has a Registrar of Voters – does yours? If not, who’s in charge?
Some states require an excuse to use mail-in ballots – does yours?
What are your options besides USPS? Can you drop off your mail-in ballot at a polling place? If yes, does it have to be your polling place?
Does your area have mail-in ballot drop-off boxes? If so, where will they be? And when?
All this information should be easy to find online.
Here’s what I found out:
My closest drop-off location is a branch of our library, about 10 minutes from my house.
The Registrar of Voters will be staffing the drop-off site, so dropped-off ballots will go directly to the Registrar.
My drop-off dates are October 6 through November 3.
If I haven’t convinced you to do just a little research to educate yourself about your options, then I ask you:
