Those who missed the Oct. 19 voter registration deadline to receive a mail-in ballot for the Nov. 3 general election still can register and cast a ballot on Election Day, and those who didn’t get their mail-in ballots sent off can deliver them to their assigned polling place.
Citizens can register and cast a provisional ballot Tuesday at one of the three Santa Barbara County Elections Division offices until 8 p.m. Tuesday, said Registrar of Voters Joe Holland.
By visiting one of the offices, citizens can fill out a provisional voter registration form and receive a ballot, Holland said. Voters can then mark the ballot and submit it right there in the office.
Elections Division offices are located at 511 E. Lakeside Parkway in Santa Maria, 401 E. Cypress St. in Lompoc and 4440-A Calle Real in Santa Barbara.
