CATHEDRAL CITY — As the pair of candidates head into the homestretch of a sometimes-contentious special election battle, some of their supporters are waiting for election results — wondering how they will be delivered.

So, how will election results be delivered in this mail-only, single-district election be released?

The first reporting on Election Night will be at or around 8 p.m. on the Registrar of Voters website, City Clerk Tracey Martinez  told Uken Report. You may find that site by clicking here.

“They will more than likely do one other update on Thursday and that will be it until they certify the results,” Martinez said.  “Since it is an all ballot election for one district only the first set of numbers should tell a lot, however, anything can happen.”

Only two names are on the ballot: Rita Lamb and Shelley Kaaplan.

As of Friday, Aug. 16, the latest information available, 883 ballots of 4,059 mailed  out have been returned, according to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters.

It is now too late to register to vote for this particular election. It is not, however, too late to cast your ballot.

Postage-paid envelopes will be provided for mailed ballot return.  For convenience, ballots may be dropped off at Cathedral City City Hall, located at 68-700 Avenida Lalo Guerrero in Cathedral City. City Hall is open Monday through Thursday, 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 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Voted ballots must be postmarked on or before Aug. 27, 2019, and received within three days by the Registrar of Voters.  All voters are encouraged to return ballots early.

For the purpose of this election, City Hall and the Registrar of Voters Office will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on August 27, 2019, to receive ballots.

There will be no polling places on Election Day.
