The State Senate Election is Tomorrow; Do You Know Where to Vote?


The 40th State Senate District special election is one day away, but you don’t have to wait until tomorrow to find your polling place.

You can find it listed on the back of the Sample Ballot and Voter Information Pamphlet sent to your home or you can use the polling place locator online. Type in your address and submit to find the polling place for your neighborhood. You can also view your sample ballot online. The election is being held to fill the remaining two years of office for the district. The vacancy was created when the elected state senator resigned before his term expired to take a position in Congress.

Despite the new redistricting boundaries, State law requires that the 2001-2010 district boundaries be used to fill this vacancy because those voters elected the original candidate. Voters who have questions on whether they live within the former boundaries can check here or call 858- 565-5800 or 1-800-696-0136.  

If you vote-by-mail but haven’t sent your ballot yet, you will need to drop off your ballot at any polling place in San Diego County or the Registrar of Voters office by 8 p.m. tomorrow. The office is located at 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, in Kearny Mesa at the corner of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and Ruffin Road. A postmark will not be acceptable.

For voters who need language assistance, election materials are also available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese, and Chinese.
