By 2012, voters in San Joaquin County may not have a polling place in which to cast their ballot. Instead, they may be required to vote by absentee ballot only. County officials are exploring the idea of a vote-by-mail-only system because it could save the county considerable money, Registrar of Voters Austin Erdman told the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

In fact, that’s already the trend. Only 25 percent of the voters who cast ballots in the June primary in San Joaquin County went to their local school, church, community center or neighbor’s garage to vote, Erdman said. That translates to only 11 percent of the county’s registered voters.
