CATHEDRAL CITY — As of Aug. 22, the latest data available, 1,082 District 1 voters have cast their ballots for the special Aug. 27 election, according to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters.

Some 4,060 ballots were issued.

If you have not voted, there is still time.

Former City Councilmember Shelley Kaplan and retired educator Rita Lamb are the only two names on the ballot. Both camps and their supporters have been working to turn out the vote. With low voter turnout, your vote — or lack thereof — could mean a win or loss.

The winner’s term will expire once the November 2020 Election Results have been certified by the Registrar of Voters Office and accepted by the City Council.  Both Kaplan and Lamb have told Uken Report that if they win the seat on Tuesday, each will seek re-election in November 2020.

District 1 voters only may drop off their ballots  at Cathedral City City Hall, located at 68-700 Avenida Lalo Guerrero in Cathedral City. City Hall is open is open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Ballots may also be dropped off at the Registrar of Voters Office, located at 224 Gateway Drive in Riverside.

The Registrar’s Office is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Voted ballots must be postmarked on or before Aug. 27, 2019, and received within three days by the Registrar of Voters.

For the purpose of this election, City Hall and the Registrar of Voters Office will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Aug. 27, 2019, to receive ballots.

There is no polling place for District 1 voters in this election.
