Voting this year:
From Nanci Oechsle, poll worker and member of League of Women Voters of North County San Diego

1) Every registered voter in the state of California will get a ballot mailed to them starting on October 5th. It is important to note that this is only for this election. It does not change your status as a poll voter in future elections. There will be drop off locations starting October 5th in 3 locations in
Vista: Vista Library, Vista’s Elks Lodge on E. Vista Way and VFW Post 7041 on S. Santa Fe. This will likely be faster than putting your ballot in the mail. If you do mail it, it is postage paid.

2) Under AB 860, processing of VBM ballots will start earlier as well. Normally it is 10 days before the election, but for this election only, it will be 29 days before the election. This is the vote count you see when the polls close, and results are posted immediately. San Diego County is already 75% VBM and the Registrar of Voters has made some improvements since 2018 that should help speed up the processing of VBM ballots.

3) In-person voting in larger spaces (consolidated polls). Face coverings are mandatory. Early voting in person starts October 31st thru election day. The hours will be 8-5 Saturday – Monday and Election Day 7am – 8pm. You will need to go to your designated polling location. This will not be your normal
one. Check your sample ballot for the one you should go to. The poll worker will suspend the ballot mailed to you and give you a paper ballot. Most of these locations will be at schools but will not be finalized until September 16th.

4) Where’s my ballot? You sign up through the Secretary of State website and this program will allow you to know when your ballot was sent to you, when it arrives at the Voter Registrar and when it is counted. https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/ballot-status/wheres-my-ballot/

5) www.sdvote.com for further information. Click on upcoming election information. Also, you can confirm your registration status and look up your ballot.
