"When your mailbox is your polling place ( as is the case in Julian this election) you can vote any time in the comfort of your own home," said Secretary of State Debra Bowen, the state's chief elections officer. ,'With so many voters choosing to vote by mail, Election Day is more like election month. However, no matter how you vote, make sure your county elections office receives your ballot by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day because postmarks don't count." County elections officials will begin mailing vote-by-mail ballots as early as May 7; ballots have already been mailed to military and overseas voters. Beginning Monday, vote-by-mail voters can cast their June 5 ballots through the mail, drop them off at any polling place within the voter's county or vote in person at county elections offices. Once county elections officials determine signature on the vote-by-mail ballot return envelope matches the voter's signature on his or her voter registration form, and the voter did not vote elsewhere in the same election, the-ballot and the envelopeare separated and the ballot is counted. All valid vote-by-mail ballots are counted in every election, regardless of the outcome or closeness of any race. Any California voter may vote by mail. The last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot is May 29. A registered voter may request a ballot by using the application printed on the back of the sample ballot booklet mailed by the county elections office, or obtain an application online at www. sos .ca .gov/elections/vote-by- mail/pdf/fill-in-vote-by-mail-app- instruct.pdf.

Any information you can provide me would be appreciated. --Susan, Danville, Va. A: I examined the picture you sent, and your brass bed appears to be from the Victorian era. It was probably manufactured between 1890 and about 1915. Most beds of this type generally sell in the $350 to $650 range, depending on condition and demand. Q: I have a Springfield Model 1863 rifle that was used by a family member during the Civil War. Can you tell me more about this firearm? -- Steve, Cottonwood, Ariz. A: It was a percussion rifle musket made by the National Armory in Springfield, II1. By 1863, Springfield was the only government arsenal under Union control, since Harper's Ferry had been destroyed by a Confederate raid in 1861. According to Warman's Civil War Weapons by Graham Smith, the Model 1861 was such a success that both Springfield and private contractors rushed to produce as many rifles as they could. Since the Union couldn't interrupt production to introduce a new design, they slightly modified it, and it was sold as a Springfield Model 1863. This is a highly desirable Civil War weapon. To determine its value, you should consult a competent arms dealer. Q: I have an umbrella stand that was made by the Roseville Pottery Company in about 1915, It is in the Mostique pattern. -- non, Alton, Ill. A: The Mostique pattern is one of the most common Roseville patterns after Pine Cone. According to Warman's Roseville Pottery by Mark F. Moran, most pieces had textured glazes of, gray or tan, and many are not marked. I could not find an umbrella stand in this guide, but. typical prices for this pattern are $350 to $450 for a wall pocket; I a jardiniere, $110 to $140; and a matched pair of vases, $325 to $350. Q: My late sister bought some rose-colored dishes. I would like to know how much they, are worth. -- Bobby, Russellville, Ala.- A: Your question is impossible to answer since you did not. provide me with the name of the pattern and other pertinent information.
