On election day, county officials say seven more vote centers will be open for registered voters and hours will change to 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.

These vote centers come as a replacement to polling places, which city officials say provide more services to voters. For instance, you can:

  • Vote in person or drop off a mail-in ballot.
  • Vote using an accessible ballot marking device.
  • Receive assistance and voting materials in multiple languages.
  • Register to vote or update your voter registration and vote on the same day.

When voting at one of these centers, you will be prompted to use a touch screen to make your selection on ballot marking devices. Then, you’ll print your official ballot, review it and hand it to a poll worker who will then insert it into a ballot box.

According to the communications office, all votes will be counted by at the San Diego Registrar’s office. Officials noted online, “the ballot marking device will not store, tabulate or count any votes.”

Voters can also mark their ballot from home, sign it, date the return envelope, seal it and return it to one of the above voting centers or ballot drop box locations. For those choosing to vote by mail, your sealed ballot must be postmarked by Aug. 15 to be counted, according to election officials.

To find a vote center or ballot drop box near you, check inside your voter information pamphlet or look up your pamphlet online.
