Monday, Oct. 22 – Deadline to Register: Residents can fill out a registration form, and if their signature is confirmed through Department of Motor Vehicles records, it will automatically be sent to the Registrar. If the signature is not confirmed, the voter will be instructed to print the form, sign it and mail it to the Registrar. For voters without access to a computer, the forms are also available at the Registrar of Voters office, US Post Offices, City Clerk offices, public libraries and Department of Motor Vehicles offices. All forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar of Voters no later than midnight on Oct. 22.
Tuesday, Oct. 30 – Deadline to Apply for Mail Ballot: Voters can find the application online or on the back of the sample ballot and voter information pamphlet sent to each registered voter. You also have the option of sending a letter to the Registrar of Voters with your name, registered address, the name and date of the election, the address where the ballot is to be mailed and your signature. Send forms to Registrar of Voters, 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, San Diego, 92123 or fax them to (858) 694-2955. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Oct. 30. Postmarks cannot be accepted.
