With the March presidential primary election approaching, each San Diego City College voter can expect a ballot mailed by the County of San Diego’s Registrar of Voters to arrive the week of Feb. 5.

In all, 1.9 million ballots have been sent out, the county announced.

The registrar’s office in Kearny Mesa will also start offering in-person early voting on Feb. 5, operating from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, according to a county press release

The office will be closed on Feb. 19 in observance of Presidents Day.

The release emphasized the ease and convenience of mail-in voting, adding the registrar encourages voters to exercise this option from the comfort of their homes.

Ballots can be returned via postage-free mail or deposited in any of the 146 registrar’s official ballot drop boxes available from Feb. 6 until the final voting day on Mar. 5.

“Remember to sign and date your return ballot envelope,” the release said. “You must sign your return envelope for your vote to count.”

For those utilizing postal services, the “Where’s My Ballot?” link tracks their ballot’s progress.

The county reported that 39 vote centers will open Feb. 24, operating from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for those who prefer to vote in-person.

On Mar. 2, an additional 179 centers will open, totaling 218 and all accessible until Mar. 4.
