Voting registration deadline nears

Two important deadlines are quickly nearing for potential voters eager to cast their ballots in the Nov. 6 presidential, state and local elections.

The deadline to register to vote is Monday, Oct. 22. Residents can fill out a registration form at www.sdvote-.com and, if their signature is confirmed through Department of Motor Vehicles records, the registration will be sent to the County Registrar’s of Voters Office. If the signature is not confirmed, the potential voter will be instructed to print the form, sign it and mail it to the Registrar’s Office.

For those without access to a computer, the forms are also available at the Registrar of Voters Office, any U.S. post office branch, the City Clerk’s offices, public libraries and Department of Motor Vehicles offices. All forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar of Voters no later than midnight on Oct. 22. 

If you’re not sure whether you’re registered, check online at www.sdvote.com.

The deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30. 

Voters can find the application at www.sdvote.com or on the back of the sample ballot and voter information pamphlet sent to each registered voter. Voters also have the option of sending a letter to the Registrar of Voters Office with their name, registered address, name and date of the election, address where the ballot is to be mailed and the voter’s signature. Send forms to: Registrar of Voters, 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, San Diego, 92123, or fax them to (858) 694-2955.
