Starting Saturday, registered voters in the Town of Windsor who have not already voted by mail in the April 12 special election, may vote in person at the following two vote centers:

Bluebird Center
        
25 Bluebird Drive, Windsor
         Early voting: April 2-11 (9 a.m.-5 p.m.)
         Election Day: April 12 (7 a.m.-8 p.m.) 

Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Office
435 Fiscal Drive, Santa Rosa
Early voting: April 2-11 (8 am.-5 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekends)
Election Day: April 12 (7 a.m.-8 p.m.)

In addition, beginning April 9, one additional vote center will open:

Windsor Civic Center Council Chambers
        
9291 Old Redwood Highway, Bldg. 400, Windsor
         Early Voting: April 9-11 (9 a.m.-5 p.m.)
         Election Day: April 12 (7 a.m.-8 p.m.)

Under the Voters Choice Act model, voters can choose to vote by mail or in person at any of these three locations, whichever is most convenient for them. Named after the law on which it is based, the objective of this model is to give voters more flexibility regarding how, when and where to cast their ballots.

In addition to offering early in-person voting, vote centers offer a variety of other services, including serving as drop-off locations for vote-by-mail ballots, issuing replacement vote-by-mail ballots (for example, if a voter’s first ballot never arrived or was lost/spoiled, etc.), providing accessible ballot marking devices to those who need or prefer to use them, and language assistance. Voters can also register to vote or update their voter registration information and cast their vote after the standard voter registration deadline.

Voters preferring to use the vote-by-mail ballot that was mailed to them may return it in one of three ways:

1) By mail. In order to count, it must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received in the Registrar of Voters Office within seven days (April 19).
2) Drop it off at one of three official ballot drop boxes:

Bluebird Center
25 Bluebird Drive, Windsor
Open 24/7 until 8 p.m. on Election Day

Oliver’s Market
9230 Old Redwood Highway, Windsor
Open 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. daily and until 8 p.m. on Election Day

Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Office
435 Fiscal Drive, Santa Rosa
Open 24/7 until 8 p.m. on Election Day

3)  Bring it to any one of the three vote centers listed earlier, during their early voting or Election Day hours.

A complete list and map of all of the above locations is available at sonomacounty.ca.gov/where-to-vote.
