If you want to vote in the comfort of your own home, you only have a few days left to request a mail ballot for the Direct Primary Election on June 3. There are several ways to apply:
- Complete the application included on the back of the sample ballot and information pamphlet mailed earlier to each registered voter.
- Download an application from the Registrar of Voters’ Web site.
- Mail or fax a note to the Registrar of Voters. The request must include the voter’s name, residence address, name and date of the election for which a ballot is requested, the address where the ballot is to be mailed, and the voter’s signature.
Applications and notes can be faxed to (858) 694-2955 or sent to the Registrar of Voters at P.O. Box 85520, San Diego, CA 92186-5520.
By state law, applications must be physically received by the Registrar of Voters no later than 5 p.m., Tuesday, May 27. They cannot be simply postmarked on that date.
Those who miss the deadline can vote in person at the Registrar of Voters office at 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, in Kearny Mesa.
Service for sight-impaired
In addition, the Registrar of Voters is providing audiocassettes for sight-impaired voters with information about the local candidates and measures on the June 3 ballot.
The cassettes are available in English, Filipino, Spanish and Vietnamese at the following locations: Braille Institute, San Diego Center for the Blind, San Diego Central Library, and library branches in areas containing local measures including Carlsbad, Encinitas, and Oceanside.
