Monday is the last day to register to vote for the June 7 primary election, or switch party affiliations.
San Diego County Registrar of Voters Michael Vu said voters may need to re-register if they’ve moved or changed their name. Re-registration can be accomplished online at sdvote.com until midnight. Paper forms have to be turned into the registrar’s office or postmarked by midnight, according to Vu.
Voters registered as no party preference or nonpartisan will not have presidential candidates appear on ballots, so if they want to cast a ballot for a particular candidate, they’ll have to request a ballot — for the American Independent, Democratic or Libertarian parties — or re-register for the Green, Peace & Freedom or Republican parties.
The election will feature races for president, Congress, Legislature and, in the city of San Diego, for mayor, city attorney and City Council. Numerous propositions will also appear on the ballot.
Registered voters who a mail ballot have to make their request by May 31. Around 900,000 have already been sent out.
“When you get your mail ballot, vote it and send it back right away,” Vu said. “We can start processing that ballot so it’s ready to count right when the polls close at 8 p.m. on Election Day.”
Voters can also cast ballots early at the registrar’s office, 5200 Overland Ave. in Kearny Mesa, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays until the polls close on June 7.
