Early voting began today and will continue from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday and until the polls close at 8 pm on Election Day (Tuesday, June 7). The office will also be open 8 am to 5 pm on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 for weekend voting.

Approximately 900,000 mail ballots were sent out through the post office Monday and voters could find them in their mailboxes as soon as Tuesday. Voters who requested them are urged to act on them right away.

“If you know how you want to vote, grab that mail ballot when you get it, vote it and send it back in right away,” said Registrar Michael Vu. “The sooner we get the ballot back, the sooner we can start processing it so it will be counted right when the polls close at 8 pm on June 7.”

Mail ballots are convenient for voters who’d rather not make a special trip to the Registrar of Voter’s office to cast their ballots or wait for the polls to open on Election Day. Registered voters can request a mail ballot until May 31.

Meantime, the Registrar is still looking for poll workers especially bilingual poll workers. For more information, call 858-565-5800 or visit sdvote.com.
