Voter resources for the November election

Presidential Election 2020

SAN DIEGO — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, every registered voter in California — including San Diego County — will receive a ballot in the mail for the 2020 Presidential Election on Nov. 3. Ballots, instructions and “I Voted” stickers will be mailed out starting Oct. 5. If you want to vote in person, you still can.

Want to drop off your mail ballot? These designated drop-off locations will be available from Oct. 6 through Nov. 3. Double-check hours at each location’s website.

Want to track your mail ballot? Sign up for “Where’s My Ballot?” to track your ballot every step of the way. You can choose to receive notifications by email, text or phone call.

Prefer to vote in-person? Polling places will be open four days: Oct. 31 through Nov. 3. There will be fewer locations than in prior elections, so your polling place has likely moved. Find your polling place by entering your information here. Voters will be assigned to a polling place on this list.
