I tried to drop my ballot in the Palo Alto & El Camino drop off box on two separate occasions and couldn't find it :( I resorted to dropping it off @ Palo Alto City Hall.

on Page Mill Road and El Camino Real, 2700 Block El Camino Real, Palo Alto​

But, I couldn't find that drop off box. No wonder they have only received 136 ballots, as per the article.
