Volume 1 - September 14, 2020
Welcome to our first neighborhood newsletter! We have election information and also are launching our new Stoneridge website. Check out the details below!
All voters will get a vote-by-mail ballot – In order to protect voters and poll workers from pandemic conditions that may be worse in November, the state is requiring all active voters to receive a vote-by-mail ballot. This ballot will come automatically – no request is needed. Ballots will be mailed about one month before Election Day. If you do not receive your vote-by-mail ballot by October 16, 2020, please contact the Placer County Elections Office at 530-886-5650 or email@example.com to receive a replacement ballot.
New City Council districts – One change on the November ballot is that the city council was recently divided into districts. The Stoneridge Neighborhood Association is in District 3. Since candidates for city council are now elected by district, our neighborhood will vote on candidates from District 3.
Deadline for voter registration changes – If you have recently moved to Stoneridge and need to update your voter registration address or political party before the election, the last day to make changes by mail or online is October 19, 2020. Otherwise, you can make those changes in person at the Placer County Elections Office or at one of the voter service centers through Election Day. If you act now, you will get your voting materials early and will not have to rush at the last second.
Office hours and voter service center hours – For voters who need replacement vote-by-mail ballots close to Election Day or who must vote in person, the Placer County Elections Office will be able to issue ballots 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday beginning October 5. Additionally, voter service centers will be open October 31, November 1 and November 2 (times and locations are still being determined) and on Election Day, November 3, from 7am to 8pm. There will be 28 voter service centers across Placer County to take the place of our 230 pollling places, so voters are encouraged to vote by mail or vote at a service center before Election Day to avoid the lines!
Questions? If you have questions, the Placer County Elections Office is here to help! They are open 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on holidays before Election Day, and from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on the last two weekends before Election Day (October 24/25 and October 31/November 1). They can be reached by telephone at 530-886-5650 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the upcoming election, visit placerelections.com.
Stoneridge also has a new website! We would love for you to check it out at SNA.RCONA.ORG and subscribe to get updates. We promise, we won't share your info and will communicate only when there is news!
We also have a Facebook page, if you so desire, please "like" that page! Its Stoneridge Neighborhood Association. :). We post pictures and all sorts of information!
