SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler urges San Diego County residents to apply now to vote by mail in future elections.
"We expect Governor (Arnold) Schwarzenegger and state lawmakers to call a special election sometime during the next few months, so it is a good time to update your registration," Seiler said. "Getting your ballot by mail is convenient and allows you to take your time when filling out the ballot."
Applications for a mail ballot can be obtained through the San Diego County Registrar of Voters' Web site at http://www.sdvote.com/, or by calling (858) 565-5800.
