Politics

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) – Santa Clara County is offering new resources to make sure people can get to their early voting location to cast their ballot.

“Get out and vote! It’s important to get your voice heard. There’s a lot of places in countries that do not have that opportunity. It’s important to exercise that right and take advantage of it,” said Santa Clara County resident Kimberly Rivera.

Levi’s Stadium is one of 100 voting centers in Santa Clara County, along with 98 drop box locations. Additional locations include the Chase Center and the Oakland Coliseum.
