Mail-in voters

For those that were industrious enough to vote early by mail, what next? Want to ensure your vote was counted? You are in luck!!!

Santa Clara County has your back! If you looked at the Vote By Mail Ballot Instructions, there was a QR Code printed on it pointing to the site, http://www.sccvote.org

On their page at the center is the following icon:

Click on the Vote By Mail Ballot Tracking link and complete the form with your registered street address and birthdate (MM/DD/YYYY). If the registrar received and counted your ballot, it will indicate in the displayed results!

Success! You confirmed your vote was received and counted! Thanks for performing your civic duties and participating in the election process.

National Drug Takeback Day

Do you have unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs within your household that need to be properly disposed? These should NEVER be discarded into garbage, flushed, or washed down a sink. The chances of it damaging wildlife, ground water, or our drinking supply is too great. Instead, drop off these drugs at a designated disposal site. There are several throughout the city. However, for this specific event our nearest drop-off site (ONLY accepts pills and patches, no sharps) is:

SJPD Substation (next to the Costco on Great Oaks Pkwy)
6087 Great Oaks Pkwy
Saturday October 27, 2018
10AM – 2PM

If you cannot make it to this event, checkout the Santa Clara County Household Hazardous Waste program. It has links for sites throughout the county for drop-off of drugs and sharps for proper disposal.
