Voters can take advantage of early voting at 39 vote centers around San Diego County starting Saturday, with daily hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Residents can visit any vote center – there are multiple North County, East and South County options, along with several city of San Diego locations – which provide a range of services. Find the best option at sdvote.com.

The weekend before election day, beginning Nov. 5, another 179 locations will open, bringing the total to 218 vote centers, all open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All will be open again on Election Day, Nov. 8, when voting hours expand from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Vote centers replace polling places and provide more services, including:

  • Voting in-person or dropping off a mail-in ballot
  • Voting using an accessible ballot marking device
  • Voting materials in multiple languages
  • Same-day registration or update to voter registration, while also voting.

Voters can still mark their absentee ballot from home and return it to one of the Registrar’s official ballot drop boxes or the vote centers or via U.S. mail as long as it’s postmarked by Nov. 8.

After a ballot is returned, it may be tracked through the Registrar’s office at sdvote.com or the U.S. Postal Service by signing up for “Where’s My Ballot?”.
