If you plan to vote in the statewide special election on May 19, you need to make sure that you register to vote by May 4.
The ballot will feature six initiatives proposed by Governor Schwarzenegger and the legislature that would change the state budget process.
Residents in Coronado will also vote to fill a city council vacancy.
“We encourage people to check their registration information on our Web site to find out if it is updated,” said Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler.
You will need to fill out a form if you are not currently registered, have recently moved or changed your name. To check your registration status online, visit www.sdvote.com.
Forms are available on the Registrar’s Web site, as well as at the Registrar of Voters office, post offices, public libraries, the Department of Motor Vehicles, and local city clerks’ office. The Registrar of Voters will be open until 9 p.m. on Monday, May 4 to accept registration forms.
All forms must be postmarked on or before May 4.
Another important deadline for voters is Tuesday, May 12, the last day to request a mail ballot.
You can get a mail ballot application at www.sdvote.com, or send a request to the Registrar of Voters including your name, residence address, name and date of the election for which a ballot is requested, the address where the ballot is to be mailed and your signature.
