rov-logoSan Bernardino County Voter Information Guides for the November 8, 2016 Presidential General Election will be delivered to the U.S. Post Office on Friday, October 7 and early voting for the election begins at the Elections Office on Monday, October 10.

Inside the Voter Information Guide, voters will find a sample ballot, as well as information about voting, candidates, and local measures.  On the back cover of the guide, voters will find the address of their assigned polling place.  Voters are encouraged to hold on to their guide so they can easily find their polling place on Election Day.

Early voting hours for the Elections Office, 777 E. Rialto Avenue, San Bernardino, CA 92415, are Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.  The office will also be open on Saturday, November 5, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

At the Elections Office, voters can take a ballot selfie with their unmarked ballot and their ‘I Voted’ sticker in front of a ballot selfie poster.  “Taking a ballot selfie and sharing it on social media is a great way to increase excitement about the election,” said Registrar of Voters Michael J. Scarpello.  In addition to early voting sites, ballot selfie posters will be placed at every polling place on Election Day.

Beginning Monday, October 31, additional early voting sites will open in Ontario, Victorville, Lake Arrowhead, and Yucca Valley.
