The mid-term election ballot will be longer than usual because of the larger number of contests in November, the Registrar of Voters announced this week.
Voters will receive a two-card ballot when they head to the polls on Nov. 6 and each card will have contests listed on both the front and back, the registrar said.
Because of the length of the ballot, voters were urged to mark up their selections on their sample ballot pamphlets before heading out on Election Day to save time at the polls.
“If you have your completed sample ballot pamphlet ready when you enter the voting booth, you can quickly fill in the official ballot and be on your way,” the county said in a news release.
Another way to save time is to vote by mail, the county said. The registrar will mail out more than 1.1 million ballots to home starting Monday, Oct 8.
Aside from being convenient, another advantage of voting by mail is that you take your time in completing your ballot in the comfort of your home.
You would, however, still need to mail it in on or before Nov. 6. The two-card ballot does weight more, so you will need 71 cents in postage.
The deadline to register to vote by mail is Oct. 30. For more information, call (858) 565-5800 or visit sdvote.com.
