Santa Barbara City Council Approves Vote By Mail Municipal Election

Posted on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 12:40am

Santa Barbara voters will decide the city’s municipal elections by mail this coming November.

The Santa Barbara City Council decided yesterday to do a by mail election, after the City Clerk’s office told the council percentage of people voting that way has climbed dramatically during the last three elections, while in person voting at polling places dropped.

Officials also say it will save the city money. Voters will decide the mayor’s race, three city council seat, and at least one municipal ballot measure in November.
