Voting Begins in California's June Primary

San Diegans can return their mail-in ballots, as voting has begun for the California June primary.

The San Diego County Registrar of Voters mailed out approximately 900,000 ballots to voters across the county.

Registrar Michael Vu wants voters to send in those ballots if they've already decided on the candidates and the issues. 

That way, his staff can process and count the votes as quickly as possible.

A report from the National University Institute for Policy Research is predicting high voter turnout, 50 to 53 percent, saying voter registration has soared since the beginning of the year.

Vu said voters could surpass the turnout of 61 percent in the 2008 primary.

"What we've seen is that when a voter receives a mail ballot in their hand their more likely to return it to us," Vu said.

And the report says these voters are younger, more diverse and lean more democrat than the overall San Diego Electorate.

The last day to register to vote is May 23.
