MARTINEZ, CA — Mail-in and early voting is already underway for the March 3 election in California. In addition to the presidential primary, California voters are deciding on Proposition 13, the largest bond in state history. And in Contra Costa County, Measure J would raise the sales tax an extra half-cent to fund transportation and local road improvements.

Martinez residents who skipped the vote-by-mail option in favor of voting at the polls this Election Day should have a sample ballot that came in the mail and lists their designated polling place. In Contra Costa County, registered voters and those seeking to register AND vote on Election Day can cast their ballots from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 3 at the Contra Costa County Elections Office, 555 Escobar in Martinez.

Misplaced your sample ballot? That's OK; just go online to My Voter Status on the California Secretary of State's website, enter the requested information and your polling place will pop up on the screen. There's also a simple-to-use Polling Place Lookup tool on the California Secretary of State's website.

You can also call the toll-free Voter Hotline at 800-345 VOTE (8683) or text the word Vote to GOVOTE (468683) to find out the location of your polling place.

Voter Information Guides are also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to election-related questions about polling places, arguments for and against ballot measures, and this year, information about same-day voter registration.
