A new law allows voters who missed the voter registration deadline on May 21 to register on a later date and vote on that same day. However, San Diego County residents who want to take advantage of the Conditional Voter Registration law for the June 5 gubernatorial primary election must visit the Registrar of Voters office in Kearny Mesa to do so.
Conditional Voter Registration is available only during the 14 days prior to and including Election Day. Prospective voters will be able to register to vote, mark and cast their ballot provisionally on-site.
The votes will be counted after election officials verify the voter registration and confirm the voter has not yet voted elsewhere in the current election.
The 2018 election cycle is the first time the new law is in effect for a statewide election. While voters who register past the deadline will not be able to vote at their traditional polling place, they will not lose their opportunity to cast their ballot.
The Registrar of Voters office is located at 5600 Overland Ave, San Diego, 92123. The office is open 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. The office will also be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 2 and Sunday, June 3 for weekend voting. The Registrar’s office will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.
For voters who need language assistance, election materials are also available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.
