San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters (ROV) Melinda Dubroff on Tuesday provided a presentation to the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors regarding the Nov. 3 general election.
Dubroff also answered several questions regarding the following:
• 2,265 voters who were sent replacement ballots due to the original ballot missing the San Joaquin Delta Community College District Trustee Area 2 contest;
• Some voters receiving their official ballots before receiving their Sample Ballot & Voter Information Pamphlet;
• A candidate statement that was submitted after the deadline was not included in the Voter Information Pamphlet; and
• 5,790 voters in the City of Manteca and 5th Supervisorial District received corrected Sample Ballot & Voter Information Pamphlets containing a sample English-language ballot in the English section of the voter information pamphlet.
“I sincerely appreciated the opportunity to discuss several election-related issues that have come up over the past few weeks with the Board and the general public. Board members asked important questions about policies and procedures that are in place to safeguard the integrity of the upcoming election, ensure that all voters are receiving timely and accurate information, and guarantee that all votes are safe and will be correctly counted,” Dubroff said. “The discussion helped set the record straight on some issues that had been misrepresented and others that truly needed more explanation and accountability for the Supervisors and for San Joaquin County voters.”
The registrar added that “ROV staff is working around the clock to make sure that there are few, if any, remaining errors that will occur prior to the election.”
