Voter Information Guide and Sample Ballots, and Mail Ballots Delivered to Voters for the 2014 Statewide Primary Election

Voter Information Guides were delivered to voters’ mailboxes earlier this week for the June 3, 2014  Statewide Primary Election. Mail ballots will be delivered to voters on the permanent mail ballot list  beginning May 10, 2014.

Inside the Voter Information Guide, voters will find a Sample Ballot, as well as information regarding  voting, candidates, and measures. On the back cover of the Voter Information Guide, voters will find the  address of their assigned Election Day polling place. Voters are encouraged to hold on to their guide until  Election Day so that they can easily find their polling place.

Mail ballots are being delivered this week to voters on the permanent mail ballot list. However, voters can still  sign up to receive a mail ballot by filling out the Mail Ballot Application found in their Voter Information  Guide, by downloading an application from the Elections Office website, or by calling the Elections Office.  Voted mail ballots may be returned via the U.S. Postal Service, in person to any polling place on Election Day  or to one of the fifty-seven mail ballot drop-off locations prior to, and on Election Day. To find a mail ballot  drop-off location, voters can use the mail ballot drop-off map located on the Elections Office website.

Voters in this election are also able to vote early or request replacement mail ballots at the San Bernardino  County Elections Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on  Election Day, Tuesday, June 3, 2014.

Friday, May 9: ‘The American Nurse’ Comes to San Bernardino

SAN BERNARDINO, CA – In honor of Nurses Week, the Global Nursing Program will be showing the new film “The American Nurse” in the ASU Fox Theater in San Bernardino on Friday, May 9th at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 at the door or online at www.gNp193.com. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The American Nurse is a heart-warming documentary that gives a voice to nurses who are on the front lines of the biggest issues facing America, such as aging, war, poverty, prisons through the work and lives of five nurses. It is an examination of real people that will change how we think about nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America. The American Nurse is an important contribution to America’s ongoing conversation about what it means to care.

Professionals that see the documentary can earn 1.5 CE credits through an arrangement with www.nurse.com. A portion of the proceeds from The American Nurse Project have been earmarked to a new scholarship program under the auspices of the American Nurses Foundation.

The historic ASU Fox Theater was originally opened in 1929 and was the site for the West Coast premiere of the original “King Kong” film in 1933. It is located at 374 West Court Street in downtown San Bernardino, just a block from City Hall across the street from the Bank of America.
