We all should be receiving official election ballots in the mail now.

An official, secured drop-off box.

The Riverside County Registrar of Voters Office has designated the Idyllwild Library as an official ballot drop-off location for completed ballots. From now through Election Day, Nov. 3, two registrar of voters employees will be accepting completed ballots from voters in the Library’s Community Room, even when the Library itself is not open.

Completed ballots may be dropped off at the Library Community Room Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Monday, Nov. 2 and also on Election Day itself, Tuesday, Nov. 3 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Make sure you carefully follow each and every instruction in the voting materials that come with your ballot, including signing you name in a place provided on the envelope.

Be aware that one or more political parties are attempting to collect ballots at unofficial ballot drop-offs. No one knows what happens to ballots dropped off at such places. Check the credentials of those running ballot drop-offs. Official credentials of the Riverside County Registrar of Voters are as pictured here.

Also, if you decide to mail in your ballot, it must be postmarked by the United States Postal Service on or before Nov. 3.
