You can also get your ballot into postal mail, but if you do that, be sure it has a stamp (which isn’t needed if you drop it off at a van or one of the fixed dropboxes around the county). As usual, one round of results is expected after voting ends, usually about 8:15 pm, and we’ll publish highlights here on WSB immediately. P.S. We’ve heard so far from one venue promising election coverage on the big screen – Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor); calendar listing here.
