Last Day to Register to Vote is Monday

Citizens can register to vote online.

Monday is the last day to register to vote in the June 5 primary election.

Residents who are unregistered, have moved, changed their party preference, or changed their name can print out a form online, fill it out and mail it as long it is postmarked by Monday or dropped off at the Registrar of Voters office at 5201 Ruffin Road in Kearny Mesa.

Registration forms can also be found at U.S. post offices, public libraries, city clerk offices and the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The June 5 ballot includes the presidential primary, the race for mayor of San Diego, and the first open seat on the county Board of Supervisors since the mid-1990s.

San Diego County Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler said nonpartisan registrants will not be able to vote for presidential candidates in the Republican, Green, Libertarian or Peace and Freedom parties. Those who want to vote for a presidential candidate need to request a special Democratic ballot for nonpartisan voters, or an American Independent Party ballot -- or change their party registration, she said.

I can't think of anything more important in a democracy than voting. But you have to register first.
