TODAY IS the deadline to register to vote in the May 19 special statewide "budget fix" election. Voter registration forms are available at locations throughout San Mateo County including DMV offices, public libraries, post offices, welfare offices and city clerk offices.
An online registration form also is available at shapethefuture.org.
Voters who wish to cast their ballots by mail instead of going to a polling place have until May 12 to request vote-by-mail ballots. Such ballot applications are on the back of each sample ballot mailed to voters. They also are available at the county elections office, 40 Tower Road in San Mateo and online at shapethefuture.org.
