Some registered voters in San Diego County began receiving their ballots on Monday as the June 7 Gubernatorial primary election is fast approaching.
More than 1.9 million ballots are on their way to San Diego Voters, who will also find an “I Voted” sticker inside official ballot packets. Voters will choose a new county sheriff and Chula Vista Mayor.
Voters will also decide on major legislative races such as the San Diego Unified School District Board, San Diego City Council, San Diego County Board of Supervisors, and Superior Court judges.
Early voting is underway at the Registrar of Voters office in Kearny Mesa. Hours run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, the Registrar encourages voters to take advantage of the convenience of voting by mail.
No postage is needed to return voted ballots through mail or to any of the Registrar’s official ballot drop box locations around the county starting Monday, May 9 through Election Day. County officials remind voters to sign and date their return ballot envelope, as signatures are required for your vote to count.
Voters who return their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service can track it by signing up for “Where’s My Ballot?”. People can also cast their vote in person at any voting center.
Starting Saturday, May 28, select vote centers will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. including Memorial Day on Monday, May 30. Then starting Saturday, June 4, over 200 vote centers will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
All vote center locations will be open on Election Day, June 7, when voting hours change from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
You can find an official ballot drop box or vote center location near you inside your voter information pamphlet, or you can look it up online at sdvote.com.
