San Diego, California - The last day to register to vote for a new San Diego city council member in District No. 4 is Monday, March 11.
The special election is being held to fill a vacancy after the elected council member resigned to take another position.
Despite the new redistricting boundaries, State law requires the 2001-2010 district boundaries be used to fill the vacancy because those voters elected the original candidate. Voters who have questions on whether they live within the former boundaries can check at sdcounty.ca.gov/voters/Eng/EproceedDL.html.
If you live within the boundaries, you will need to register if you:
- are not currently registered
- recently moved
- recently changed your name
If you’re not sure about your registration, check it online at sdvote.com. If you’re not registered or need to change your registration, you’ll find that form there too. If your 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 prompted at that time to print the form, sign it and mail it to the Registrar.
For voters without access to a computer, registration forms are also available at the Registrar of Voters office at 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, in Kearny Mesa, US Post Offices, public libraries, City Clerk offices and Department of Motor Vehicles offices. For voters who need language assistance, election materials are also available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.
Registration forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar by midnight on March 11 for the March 26 election. Voters can also register online until midnight.
The Registrar of Voters is also conducting a special election for the 40th State Senate District Tuesday, March 12. The vacancy was created when the elected state senator resigned to take a position in Congress. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Some voters will be eligible to cast ballots in both of the upcoming elections.
