SAN DIEGO — Early voting kicked off Monday as the San Diego County Registrar of Voters office opened for in-person voting and the U.S. Postal Service began delivering mail-in ballots.
Voters can cast their ballot at the Registrar of Voters office Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Nov. 2. County residents can also visit the office to register to vote.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all registered voters in California will receive a mail-in ballot. Voters can mail in their ballot by using the postage paid envelope and dropping it off in any USPS collection box or taking it to any mail ballot drop-off location beginning Tuesday. Voters can also drop off their ballot Oct. 31 through Nov. 3 at the super poll location to which they are assigned.
President Donald Trump has expressed doubts about the security of mail-in voting, but San Diego County Registrar of Voters Michael Vu assured voters Monday that mail-in ballots are safe.
“Not only do we track every single mail ballot that we issue but we also signature verify every single one of these ballots as they come back — verify against the signature on file with our respective office,” Vu told FOX 5.
Voters can sign up for “Where’s My Ballot?” to track the status of their mail-in ballot every step of the way.
