SAN DIEGO — County election officials confirmed Tuesday that a two-card ballot will be used in November, and urged San Diegans to prepare in advance in order to save time at the polls.

Runoff elections for public office, and state and local propositions, will take up both sides of each card for the Nov. 8 general election, according to the county Registrar of Voters Office.

The ballot will include races for president, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, the California Legislature, 17 state propositions and two countywide ballot measures.

Numerous local offices are also up for grabs — including battles for San Diego City Attorney and the City Council’s District 9. Additionally, the city of San Diego will present voters with a dozen ballot measures.

The registrar’s office said voters interested in casting their ballots at their assigned polling place on Election Day are encouraged to firstmark their choices on their sample ballot pamphlet. If the completed sample ballot pamphlet is available in the voting booth, the official voting ballots can be filled out faster.

Elections officials also suggested voters sign up for mail-in ballots at sdvote.com. More than 960,000 mail ballots will be mailed to homes starting Oct. 11.
