Riverbank voters have two locations where they can drop off their recall election ballots right now, right here, in town. These sites will remain available until Sept. 14.

The first is located at the Riverbank Branch of the Stanislaus County Library, 3442 Santa Fe St., where operating hours are from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays.

The second site is inside O’Brien’s Market, 6331 Oakdale Road. Hours there are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., daily.

These Riverbank locations are just two of the 26 voting sites at businesses and municipal offices across the county.

Officials are planning to open additional voting centers beginning on Sept. 8. In Riverbank, that includes the Teen Center, 3600-A Santa Fe Street, which will reportedly open on Sept. 11. They’ll be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. including weekends, then 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 14, Election Day.

They say there will be four ballot drop-off locations across the county, but none in Riverbank. They’ll be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 13, and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 14.

And, of course, the ballot may be mailed back to the county Elections Division of the Stanislaus County Clerk’s office anytime, as long as it is postmarked up to and including Sept. 14.
