Redmond Ballot Drop Site Changes
The 24/7 day a week drive-by drop site at the Redmond Library will now open early beginning with the May 20 election. The 24/7 drive-by drop site will open on Friday, May 2 (extending days of operation from four to 19 days). There will no longer be a drop site at Redmond City Hall. The drop site box at the Redmond Library is located on the west side of the Library, at the corner of 9th Street and Cascade Avenue. The reason for extending days at the Redmond Library drop site is in response to voter request. The drop site at Redmond City Hall was only a block and a half away and had limited hours. The change will consolidate two drop sites down to one, with the extended days of operation for that site.. This change will extend 24/7 service for voters in the Redmond area with limited additional expense. For information on all drop site locations and days/hours of operation see the Deschutes County Voters' Pamphlet.
