Thanks to 11 state propositions and 10 local measures, people who vote by mail in Sacramento County will have to put extra postage on their ballots.
According to the Sacramento County registrar’s office, this election’s ballots will consist of two 19-inch long cards, weighing a little more than an ounce. Thanks to that added weight, the ballots will cost $0.65 to mail, the registrar’s office notes.
Anyone living within Sacramento’s city limits will receive three 19-inch ballot cars, the added ballot thanks to City contests. However, postage for this ballot will still be $0.65.
Ballots need to arrive at the registrar’s office by 8 p.m. Nov. 6, meaning postmarks will be not be accepted.
People looking to avoid paying the extra postage can drop off their ballots early at any time at designated locations throughout Sacramento County. Those locations are listed at http://www.elections.saccounty.net.
Further, on Election Day, mail-in ballots can be turned in at any polling place before the polls close at 8 p.m.
