Election Day 2020 is less than a week away and 36% of California’s registered voters or nearly 8 million people have already turned in their ballots.

If you have already voted, ballots can be tracked at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov and one can receive an e-mail, text, or voice call notification for the receipt of the ballot and whether it has been accepted and/or counted.

Beginning Oct. 31 through and including November 3, there will be 100 accessible vote locations available to vote in person and 66 drop boxes distributed to collect absentee ballots throughout Alameda County, according to Alameda County Registrar of Voters Tim Dupuis.

The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is the largest voting location and is open for in-person voting and curbside voting, and is equipped with ballot drop boxes.  Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on October 31 through November 2 and 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3.

Parking is free in Lot D, which can be accessed from the 66th Avenue entrance.

Centers for Disease Control and state and local public health guidelines for COVID-19, including physical distancing protocols and face coverings, will be enforced within 25 feet of the voting location.

You can also get assistance with voting and help with lost or damaged ballots at the Coliseum.

Masks will also be provided at the location.
