Berkeley now boasts six ballot drop boxes after the Alameda County Registrar of Voters installed four new boxes this week, the city announced Thursday.
The boxes are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the city said. County staff will pick up ballots daily through Election Day, Nov. 3.
The new boxes are located at:
- Frances Albrier Community Center at San Pablo Park | 2800 Park St.
- Claremont Branch Library | 2940 Benvenue Ave.
- North Branch Library | 1170 The Alameda
- West Branch Library | 1125 University Ave.
Previously, Berkeley had only two ballot boxes: outside the Civic Center Building at 2180 Milvia St. and on the UC Berkeley campus between Sather Gate and the Architects & Engineers Building (campus map).
These six sites are the only official ballot drop locations in town, the city said Thursday.
Voters are not limited to Berkeley ballot boxes, however: Residents can use any of the 66 drop boxes throughout Alameda County. They can also take them to one of the county’s 100 accessible voting locations starting Oct. 31.
