Monday is Last Day to Register to Vote for Carlsbad Election

If you are a Carlsbad resident and want to vote in the Feb. 23 Special Municipal Election on Measure A, the Agua Hedionda South Shore Specific Plan, you must register by Monday, Feb. 8.

You will need to register if you:

  • are not currently registered
  • recently moved
  • recently changed your name

If you’re not sure about your registration status, check it online. If you’re not registered or need to change your registration, you’ll find that form there, too. If your signature is confirmed through Department of Motor Vehicles records, it will automatically be sent to the Registrar of Voters office. If the signature is not confirmed, you can print the form, sign it and mail it to the Registrar.

For voters without access to a computer, registration forms are also available at the Registrar’s office, post offices, public libraries, City Clerk offices and Department of Motor Vehicles offices. For voters who need language assistance, election materials are also available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese.

Registration forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar by 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 8. Voters can also register online until midnight that same day.

Early voting is already under way at the Registrar of Voters, located at 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, 92123 on the County Operations Center campus.

Voters can cast their ballots there from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until Election Day when the voting hours will change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. to reflect the hours at the polls.

There is still time to apply for a mail ballot if that is more convenient. Registered voters can request a mail ballot until Feb. 16.
