Voter Registration Information and Links

If you are 18 years old, you can register to vote. If you are 16 or 17 you can pre-register now; you will then be automatically registered when you turn 18.

This is a good time to confirm that you're registered at your current address, register to vote if you need to (deadline: Feb. 18), or request a mail ballot (deadline: Feb. 25).

In this election, nonpartisan voters who want to vote for a Democratic presidential candidate will have to specifically request a "Nonpartisan Democratic" ballot. They can do so online here or call the Registrar of Voters at (858) 565-5800. (Deadline: Feb. 25)

The San Diego County Democratic Party has endorsed a judge in all four races; see SDDEM Voter Guide.

The San Diego County Bar Association evaluates all the candidates; results will be posted here.

A progressive journalist's take on the nominees can be found here, including links to the San Diego Union Tribune's interviews with each candidate.
