Final push as candidates prepare for Tuesday's election

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - While some voters already cast their ballots for San Diego's next mayor, others remain undecided, which is way the top four candidates spent Monday hitting the streets in their final push.

Nathan Fletcher started his morning with a get out the vote rally at Harbor Island Park. With supporters by his side, Fletcher explained why he deserves the city's top seat.

"We're gonna make sure we have a mayor who understands the highest priority for neighborhoods is making sure they're safe, police officers and firefighters on the street," he said.

David Alvarez was up at dawn riding the trolley, reminding commuters all over San Diego to get out and vote.

"We're hoping with all of their support, with them getting out to vote tomorrow -- which is the most important thing to do -- we're going to be successful, we're going to be in a run-off, and in a couple of months we'll be the next mayor of San Diego," Alvarez said.

Over at the Monarch School, a place for children who are homeless or living in shelters, Kevin Faulconer spoke to students and answered their questions about issues ranging from the convention center expansion to the importance of government.

"When I was in high school, I was getting involved. This is the future of our city, right here," Faulconer said.

Mike Aguirre began his day addressing the city's infrastructure committee before heading over to the Alpha Project Shelter. While there, he talked with the homeless and discussed why he's optimistic going into Tuesday's election.

"I feel that each of us has a moral obligation to seek justice. Justice is truth in action, and I try to be that every day," Aguirre said.

The Registrar's Office will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday. You can walk in, or simply drive up and drop off your mail-in ballot.
