Fresno County voters can turn in their Nov. 6 ballots fast-food style on Election Day at any of nine drive-throughs.
County elections officials say that with more people opting to receive their ballots in the mail, the pilot program was designed to allow voters to turn in those ballots in a convenient manner.
The sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and are "expected to help ease and reduce the problems voters experience finding parking and having to wait in lines when returning their ballots to polling places," county Clerk Brandi Orth said.
There will be at least one drive-through site in each of the supervisorial districts:
Clovis: Clovis Veterans Memorial District, 808 Fourth St. (at Hughes Avenue).
Coalinga: St. Paul's Church, 637 Sunset St. (at Jefferson Street).
Easton: Easton Presbyterian Church, 5895 S. Elm Ave. (just north of Lincoln Avenue).
Downtown Fresno: Fresno County Clerk's Office, 2221 Kern St.
