San Diego, CA–The Registrar of Voters will mail ballots for the September 14 Gubernatorial Recall Election in the week of August 16 to all active registered voters in San Diego county.
Voters have nearly a month to mark their ballot and return it before Election Day. Voters can return their ballot in the mail, no postage necessary, or at one of many mail ballot drop-off locations around the county.
In-person voting locations will be open across the county for four days. From Sept. 11 through Sept. 13 they will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Election Day, the hours will change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at both the in-person voting locations and the Registrar’s office.
Voters can also take advantage of early voting starting Aug. 16 at the Registrar’s office. Hours will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Voters are urged to check their registration information to make sure their residence and mailing address is up to date. Voters who moved or changed their name must re-register to vote.
A recall ballot will ask voters two questions.
In this recall election, the first question will ask voters “yes” or “no” to remove the governor from office.
In the second part, voters will be asked to select a replacement candidate. If more than 50% of voters vote “yes” to recall the governor, the replacement candidate who gets the most votes is elected for the remainder of the term of office.
If a majority of voters vote “no” on the first question, then the recall has failed, and the governor will remain in office.
