How to Vote in Person in San Diego County

Vote Centers, which replace the typical "polling locations," are already open in San Diego County. San Diego County voters can vote at dozens of vote centers on Tuesday.

At any vote center, you can drop off your pre-filled out ballot or vote in person, either with your mail-in ballot or by using an electronic ballot marking device there.

The centers are located around the county and will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Vote center services include:

  • ADA accessible ballot marking devices
  • Language assistance and voting materials in the County’s four federally covered languages:
  • Voter registration or registration updates with the ability to vote on the same day
  • Voting in person if you made a mistake on or lost your mail ballot
If you've never voted by mail before, it might seem new and even a little dangerous. But mail-in voting actually dates back to the Civil War. Chase Cain explains the long and uncontroversial history of voting by mail.

How to Vote By Mail in San Diego County

County Registrar Cynthia Paes also wants to remind voters that mail-in ballots are safe and secure.

Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Election Day on June 7, 2022, to be counted. If you are unsure if your ballot will be postmarked on time, consider dropping off your ballot to one of the secure ballot-drop-off locations in the county.

You can drop off your completed ballot at any of the blue or purple locations on the map below from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
