If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
But Tuesday was just the beginning – the voter registration deadline for California is Oct. 22, two weeks before the Nov. 6 presidential election.
So you have some time to register in Coronado and San Diego and it can be done online, by mail or in person.
Here’s information on how you can register in time:
- Fill out a voter registration postcard in person at the San Diego County Registrar of Voters' office, 5201 Ruffin Rd., San Diego, or at the Coronado City Hall Clerk's office, the Coronado Public Library or the community's U.S. Post Office.
- Go to the California Secretary of State's website and register online.
- Call the Registrar at (858) 565-5800, request a paper form, fill it out and mail it back, to the Registrar of Voters, P.O. Box 85656, San Diego, CA. 92186-5656
- You can also check your registration status at the Registrar's website, in case you've moved and are unsure if you updated your information.
