RANCHO MIRAGE — Tuesday, April 14, is Election Day for residents registered to vote in the City of Rancho Mirage mail ballot election and Registrar of Voters Rebecca Spencer encourages every eligible voter to cast a ballot in the election.

The April 14 election encompasses all of the city of Rancho Mirage and is not a countywide election.  It is also an all-mail ballot election, so there will be no established polling places. If you have any questions about your eligibility to vote, please contact the registrar’s office at (951) 486-7200.

There are four people on the ballot, two incumbents and two challengers. The incumbents are Richard Kite and Ted Weill. The pair of challengers are Stephen Jaffe and Maggie Lockridge.

The election will be conducted completely by mail, so there will be no established polling places. You may cast a ballot in the Registrar of Voters office on Election Day between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. The Registrar of Voters office is located at 2720 Gateway Drive in Riverside.  Please call (951) 486-7200 if you need to schedule an appointment to vote in person. Ballots also may be deposited in the vote-by-mail drop-off box located at the Rancho Mirage City Clerk’s office.

All ballots must be in the possession of the Registrar of Voters Office no later than the close of polls on Election Day or be postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than three days after Election Day to be counted.

The final election results will not be certified until April 30.  A new law allows voters who forgot to sign their vote-by-mail return envelope to correct the missing signature within eight days after the election.
