October 6, 2014 (San Diego)--Voters interested in casting their ballots early for the Nov. 4 Gubernatorial General Election can now do so at the County Registrar of Voters new office at 5600 Overland Ave. in Kearny Mesa.
Early voting began Monday and will continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and until the polls close at 8 p.m. on Election Day. The office also will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 for weekend voting.
Approximately 850,000 mail ballots were sent out through the post office Monday and voters could find them in their mailboxes starting Tuesday. Voters who requested them are urged to act on them right away.
Registrar Michael Vu states, “If you know how you want to vote, grab that mail ballot when you get it, vote it and send it back in right away. The sooner we get the ballot back, the sooner we can start processing it so it will be counted right when the polls close at 8 p.m. on Nov. 4.”
Mail ballots are convenient for voters who’d rather not make a special trip to the Registrar of Voter’s office to cast their ballots or wait for the polls to open on Election Day.
The Registrar is also offering another option. Starting Oct. 27 through Nov. 3, voters will be able to swing by any one of 15 locations located throughout the County to drop-off their completed mail ballots. An insert with locations and additional information has been added to each mail ballot packet. Registered voters can request a mail ballot until Oct. 28.
Meantime, the Registrar is still looking for poll workers especially bilingual poll workers. For more information, call (858) 565-5800 or visit sdvote.com.
