Election information

On Dec. 14, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors called a special all-mail election to fill the District 1 board seat vacated when Supervisor Mark Church was elected to the county position of chief elections officer, assessor and clerk-recorder. He took that position Jan. 3.

Candidates must live in District 1, which includes South San Francisco, San Bruno and Hillsborough, but the election is held county-wide.

While it's a mail-only election, voters can vote in person at a county elections office: 40 Tower Road in San Mateo, or 555 County Government Center in Redwood City. Mail-in ballots may be dropped off at any city hall in the county during regular business hours.

Ballots must be received by the county by 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 3.

The candidate who receives the most votes will be elected to fill the remainder of Mr. Church's term, which ends in January 2013.
