SPRING VALLEY, Calif. – The March 3 California Primary is less than a week away, and San Diego County voters will be voting on new machines when they go to the polls next Tuesday.

New this election, the county Registrar of Voters has established four satellite voting offices. Voters can register to vote at any of these offices on Election Day and cast a provisional ballot.

The new satellite locations are:

  • San Marcos Community Center
    3 Civic Center Drive
    San Marcos, CA 92069
  • Carmel Mountain Ranch Community Park
    10152 Rancho Carmel Drive
    San Diego, CA 92128
  • Spring Valley Community Center
    8735 Jamacha Blvd.
    Spring Valley, CA 91977
  • South Region Live Well Center
    690 Oxford Street
    Chula Vista, CA 91911

The same services are available at the main Registrar of Voters office at 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, CA 92123.

Voters will also use new voting machines on Election Day. The machines have touch screens, but they print out a paper ballot for voters to double check their votes before turning them in.

“We are going into the March 3, 2020 presidential primary election with the highest number of registered voters in our county at 1.8 million registered voters,” said Registrar of Voters Michael Vu.

The satellite locations open for early voting Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will also be open on Election Day.
