Deadline nears for ballots in Burbank general city election

With just four more days until the Burbank general election, officials say it’s too late to mail ballots in, but votes can still be cast.

Residents can drop off ballots at five locations — the Buena Vista Library, Joslyn Center, Tuttle Center, McCambridge Recreation Center and the city clerk’s office at City Hall — between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday and between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

The City Clerk’s Office will also be open for drop-offs on Friday and Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Officials are hoping to exceed the primary voter turnout, during which the city collected 9,869 ballots out of 61,170 eligible voters.

Roughly 7,000 ballots have been turned in so far, but officials are hoping that number reaches 11,000.

If voters have lost or spoiled their ballots, they can also pick up a provisional ballot at the City Clerk’s Office.
