This election season marks a critical moment for all of us, regardless of our race or place. It’s a time for all of us to join together to ensure that our voices are heard.
Beginning in May 2022, San Diego County now has Vote Centers as a new option for all voters. You will no longer vote at an assigned polling location. You can now vote at any vote center across the county. Vote Centers have the following services available:
- Vote in-person
- Vote using an accessible ballot marking device
- Receive voting assistance in multiple languages
- Register to vote or update your registration and vote on the same day
- If you made a mistake or lost your mail ballot, you can vote at any Vote Center
You can still vote by mail or drop your ballot off at an official Ballot Drop Box location. The San Diego County Registrar of Voters office will be open Monday - Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm for early voting starting on Monday, October 10th and ballot drop box locations are also open Monday, October 10th through November 8th. Visit sdvote.com for locations and hours of operation.
