The Contra Costa County election office urges residents who vote by mail to check their ballot envelopes and make sure they contain two distinct ballots.
As of noon Tuesday, eight voters reported that they failed to receive both of the cards needed to cast their votes.
Voters should receive two cards in their ballot. The first card contains the candidates and local ballot measures. The second features the 12 state ballot propositions.
If you do not have both cards, call the Elections Office at 925-335-7800, or call the toll-free number at 1-877-335-7802.
The phones are staffed during Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., Oct. 18 and 19 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
If you get a voice-mail message, please leave your name and phone number, and a clerk will return your call.
Replacement ballots will be hand-delivered as soon as possible.
