Vote early, not often

Submitted by on 1, November 3, 2008 – 8:30 amNo Comment

Election Day is not until tomorrow, but it sounds like things are already heating up over at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters. Apparently, so many people came in to vote early that the registrar extended their early voting hours over the weekend.

According to CBS 5, as many as 5,000 people turned out to vote early in Oakland on Friday (the Chron said the wait time was like 25 minutes). So they offered voting all day Saturday and Sunday. As of Sunday night, the registrar estimated they’d had 9,000 people vote early at their office, per their website. And the registrar is predicting a record turnout for this election.

You can still vote early today, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the basement of the Rene C. Davidson courthouse, 1225 Fallon Street, Oakland.

All the polls will be open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
