If you want to vote in the June 7 Presidential Primary Election, you must register to vote by midnight Monday, May 23.
You will need to register if you:
• are not currently registered
• recently moved
• recently changed your name
If you want to vote for president, make sure you can. If you’re registered as No Party Preference – or nonpartisan – presidential candidates won’t be listed on your ballot. You may request an American Independent, Democratic or Libertarian party ballot at your designated polling place to vote for the presidential candidates in those parties. If you want to vote for a presidential candidate in the Green, Peace and Freedom or Republican parties, you must re-register with that party by midnight Monday.
If you’re not sure about your registration status, check it online at sdvote.com. If you’re not registered or need to change your registration, you’ll find that form there, too. If your signature is confirmed through Department of Motor Vehicles records, it will automatically be sent to the Registrar of Voters office. If the signature is not confirmed, print the form, sign it and mail it to the Registrar today or you can drop it off in person at the Registrar of Voters office in Kearny Mesa. By state law, the Registrar must have your original signature.
For voters without access to a computer, registration forms are also available at the Registrar’s office, U.S. Postal Service offices, public libraries, City Clerk offices and Department of Motor Vehicles offices. For voters who need language assistance, election materials are also available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.
Registration forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar by midnight Monday. Voters can also register online until midnight.
If you stop by the Registrar’s office, remember it is located at 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123 on the County Operations Center campus.
Meantime, early voting is already underway at the Registrar’s office. Voters can cast their ballots there from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until Election Day when the voting hours will change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. to reflect the hours at the polls, or between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday June 4 and Sunday June 5 for weekend voting. The office will be closed Monday, May 30 in observance of Memorial Day.
