COAST CITIES — The League of Women Voters urges citizens to register to vote for the June 8 primary election.
Citizens can register in California if they are a California resident, a United States citizen, at least 18 years of age on or before an election, and not in prison or on parole for a felony conviction. If a voter’s address or name has changed, or one wishes to change party affiliation, re-registering is required. A driver’s license or ID card with the voter’s name and current address is required. The voter registration application deadline is May 24 for persons to be eligible to vote in the California June 8 primary election and is free.
Voter registration forms are available at libraries, post offices, city clerk offices, the DMV, or from the League of Women Voters. Voters can check on their registration status on the Registrar’s website at www.sdvote.com or call the Registrar’s office at (858) 565-5800 or (800) 696-0136.
Voting is a privilege of citizenship in the United States. The League of Women Voters encourages voters to become informed about the political process and how it affects their lives. To learn more about the issues and candidates, see the website, called Smart Voter, www.smartvoter.org/ca/sd/, which displays nonpartisan election information and comprehensive coverage of candidates, as well as state and local ballot measures. The League of Women Voters never endorses or opposes candidates for public office or political parties. For more voting information, contact the league at (760) 736-1608.
