Contra Costa Residents Have More Voting Options This June

Regional Early Voting sites provide flexible timing and locations to cast ballots

Contra Costa County voters will now have unprecedented flexibility to receive and cast their ballots at seven Regional Early Voting sites throughout the county the week before Election Day.

The program will debut on May 31st, a week ahead of the June 7th Primary Election. All registered Contra Costa voters will be able to vote at any of the locations. They will be open from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm Tuesday May 31st through Friday June 3rd, and 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Saturday, June 4th.



The City has funded homeless advocacy programs designed to provide essential resources to our community's most vulnerable population since 2011. This work has been recently jeopardized when Contra Costa Homeless Outreach announced it would be discontinuing operations on June 30th.

Fortunately for the City, Tesoro stepped in and informed the City that its foundation had approved a three-year, $90K grant to support the City’s Homeless Outreach Initiative. Tesoro’s generous and timely investment will help the City continue this important work by contracting with a local homeless advocate experienced with assisting the homeless in Martinez.
