The registrar’s office sent out over 1.9 million mail-in ballots to registered voters last week for the November 3 presidential general election. If you haven’t received yours, you may need to call the Office of the Registrar of Electors.

First, you can see if your ballot was sent by checking If this was not the case, there could be several reasons.

If you have moved, you must re-register to obtain a mail-in ballot. The Registrar recommends that you register online now so that you have time to send yourself a mail-in ballot before the election.

Ballots sent out last week are expected to arrive by October 10. If your voter information is up to date and your ballot has not arrived, call the registrar’s office at 858-565-5800.

If you got your ballot, don’t wait. Act now and vote from the comfort of your own home. Sign and date your envelope, seal your completed ballot inside, and return it to a trusted source.

Your marked ballot can be returned in the postage-paid envelope to any US Postal Service office or to a collection box.

You also have the option of returning your ballot to one of the 126 postal ballot drop-off points in the county. Find a drop-off point near you with this locator tool, or look inside your package of ballots for a list of three locations closest to your home.

You can also track your ballot by subscribing to Where is my ballot? You will receive notifications when your mail-in ballot arrives at the registrar’s office and when it is counted.

The sooner the registrar’s office receives your ballot, the sooner it can process it for the first publication of election night results.
