Today is the last day to register to vote in the statewide special election on May 19, when voters will decide six measures 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 will be open until 9 p.m. today to accommodate people’s schedules and give them more time to get their registration forms submitted,” said Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler.
You need to fill out a registration 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 also available on the Registrar’s Web site, as well as the Registrar of Voters office, post offices, public libraries, the Department of Motor Vehicles, and local city clerks’ offices.
All forms must be postmarked no later than today’s date, 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. The address is P.O. Box 85520, San Diego, CA 92186-5520. The fax is (858) 694-2955.
By state law, mail ballot applications must be physically received by the Registrar of Voters no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12. They cannot be simply postmarked on that date.
