The November 4, 2008, General Election is just two weeks away. Santa Clara residents are voting early, either with mail in ballots, or since October 6, at the Voter Registrar's Office. The San Jose Mercury News reports about 72,000 have voted as of Monday afternoon. Voting is available 7 days a week at the Voter Registrar's Office at 1555 Berger Dr. in San Jose.
There was a steady stream of library visitors yesterday stopping in to get voter registration forms, in anticipation of last night's deadline. Great news! County election officials are predicting 800,000 or nearly 80 percent of those eligible to vote will vote this year.
