Solano County adding two new curbside ballot dropboxes in response to public concerns over postal slowdowns

By Roger Straw, August 18, 2020

Solano County published its list of Ballot Return and Voting Addresses sometime before August 8.  The document listed curbside ballot dropboxes at 8 locations in the County on Oct. 29-Nov. 3.

Locations included two each in Fairfield, Vacaville and Vallejo, one in Dixon and one in Suisun City.

On August 17, the listing added two new locations, one in Benicia and one in Rio Vista.  Reliable sources say the new locations were in response to “concerns that have been coming up with USPS.”

Curbside ballot dropboxes will be open on Thursday, Oct. 29 until Tuesday, Nov. 3, 8am to 5pm., including Saturday, plus 7am to 8pm on Election Day.

You can – and maybe SHOULD – return your ballot earlier.  Earlier options are detailed here.
