Those who are not registered to vote but wish to in the Primary Election can still do so through Election Day. They'll just need to conditionally register and use a provisional ballot at the Registrar's office in Kearny Mesa or at any vote center.

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
