San Diego Youth Services is empowering youth to reach their full potential - and that includes letting them know their voices matter. Throughout our agency we have been providing voter education to the youth we serve to encourage them to take agency over their own futures.
Voting matters. Did you know you can still register? Read below for information on voting this Nov. 3.
Questions about voting this year?
GENERAL ELECTION DATE
Nov. 3, 2020
REGISTERING TO VOTE
Although the San Diego deadline was Oct. 19, you can still register to vote at the Registrar of Voters office, during the 14 days prior to and including Election Day, or at a polling place between Oct. 31 and Nov. 3.
WHERE IS MY BALLOT?
All registered voters should have received a ballot in the mail. Haven't received your ballot yet? Check here to find your ballot.
FILLING OUT YOUR BALLOT
Make sure to read the directions. For instance, fill in the bubble next to each of your choices, don’t mark with an X. Then, seal, sign, and date it. Secure your ballot inside the official return envelope provided by your county elections office. Make sure the signature on the return envelope matches the one you provided when registering. For many voters, this will be the signature on your CA driver’s license or state ID.
SUBMITTING YOUR BALLOT
Mail your ballot: Voting by mail is safe and easy, and recommended this year to maintain social distancing. No postage is necessary - just put your completed ballot in the nearest mailbox! Your ballot will be counted so long as it is postmarked by Nov. 3. That means you need to put your ballot in a mailbox before the end of post office hours Nov. 3 - not in the evening!
Drop off your ballot: Submit your ballot at an official secure drop box, polling place, vote center, or county elections office by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3. Find physical drop-off locations.
Voting in person: If you need to vote in person, polling places will be open for four days, Oct. 31 through Nov. 3. There will be fewer locations than in prior elections, so the location of your assigned poll has most likely changed.
