Recall election to carry a price tag in Santa Barbara County of $2.8 million
SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - The recall election Tuesday will cost Santa Barbara County $2.8 million according to Registrar of Voters Joe Holland.
That works out to about $12 per ballot.
He says the state will reimburse the county for the cost.
Holland encourages voters not to waste taxpayers' money and to vote their ballot, sign the envelope and turn it in.
The ballots can be returned in a U.S. Postal Service mailbox, special election drop-off boxes, in person at an elections office or polling place, or a voter can cast their ballot in person on election day and hand it in.
If you mail it, the ballot must have a postmark of Sept. 14 or earlier and be received by elections officials no later than seven days after the election which would be Sept. 21.
