SLO County Clerk’s Office gears up on eve of recall election
The California governor’s recall election is only hours away, and county election officials are preparing to welcome large numbers of voters in person.
September 14 is the last day to vote in the California governor’s recall election.
“Remember Gavin Newsom! Said Cameron Westphal, resident of San Luis Obispo.
“We want our governor to stay there,” said William Bradley, resident of San Luis Obispo.
San Luis Obispo County Clerk Deputy Director Helen Nolan said she received about 91,000 ballots on Monday, representing about 49% of the county’s total voters.
“We have about 39,000 Democratic voters who voted, 29,000 Republicans and about 15,000 without a party,” Nolan said.
“If you want to vote in person, bring your postal vote so you can deliver it to the polling station. It makes the experience much easier and faster, ”Nolan said.
Although many people choose to vote in person, you can still mail your ballot or use a drop box.
“If you want to return your actual vote in the mail, just mail it, postage paid, or one of our 17 ballot boxes in the county,” Nolan said.
Regardless of your political affiliation, voters can agree on one thing.
“It doesn’t matter who you vote for, we just need everyone to come here and make a difference, because this vote could make a difference,” Westphal said.
“It doesn’t matter which side they’re on, please everyone votes. Vote yes. Always vote!” Bradley said.
