Have you registered to vote in the recall election?
San Diego-The county urged San Diego to check their voter registration before the September recall election.
The postal ballot for the September 14 removal election could overthrow the seat of Governor Gavin Newsom, beginning the week of August 16. The county communications office stated that if your information is up to date, you can receive the ballot in the mailbox within the same week.
If you are a new member of San Diego County or have moved since the last time you voted, you need to register to vote with your new address. You can do this by completing a new voter registration application online: sdvote.com. The registration form can also be obtained by calling 858-565-5800 or sending an email [email protected].
Voters can return their ballots by mail or at one of the many mail-in ballot delivery locations throughout the county.
If you prefer to vote in person, the venue will be open for four days from Saturday, September 11 to Tuesday, September 14.
Where to vote in advance:
- From August 16, Monday to Friday, 8 am to 5 pm at the registration office
- Saturday, September 11 to Monday, September 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at a polling place near you or the registrar’s office
All locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day, September 14
The county stated that voters will see two parts on the removal ballot. First, voters have a “yes” or “no” option on whether to remove Newsom from office.
Second, voters have the opportunity to choose alternative candidates. If more than 50% of voters vote to remove the governor, the replacement candidate with the most votes will be elected.
