LWVMC Virtual General Meeting. "Monterey County Elections in the time of COVID"
Claudio Valenzuela, Monterey County Registrar of Voters, will speak at the September virtual general meeting about local preparations for the November 3 presidential election.
Following state directives, every registered voter will receive a vote-by-mail ballot. Early voting centers will be open in Salinas and the Monterey Peninsula at least four days (Oct. 31) before Election Day. In addition the traditional polling places will operate on Election Day (Nov. 3).
Challenges include timely handling of vote-by-mail ballots, insuring the safety of voters and staff at the in-person voting locations, and combating a lot of confusion caused by stories about voting in other states.
Mr. Valenzuela's talk will be recorded and posted on the LWVMC web site
