What is a Recall Election? Where’s my Ballot? How to I Vote? All Registered Voters to Receive Mail Ballot for Gubernatorial Recall Election


From the County News Center: The Registrar of Voters is alerting all active registered voters in San Diego County that they will receive a ballot in the mail for the September 14, 2021, California Gubernatorial Recall Election. Ballots will be mailed the week of August 16, 2021, giving voters nearly a month to mark their ballot and return it before Election Day. Voters can return their ballot in the mail, no postage necessary, or at one of many mail ballot drop-off locations around the county.

What is a recall?

  • The recall process allows voters to decide whether to remove elected public officials from office before their term is over.
  • A recall ballot will ask voters two questions.
    • In this recall election, the first question will ask voters “yes” or “no” to remove the governor from office.
    • In the second part, voters will be asked to select a replacement candidate.
      • If more than 50% of voters vote “yes” to recall the governor, the replacement candidate who gets the most votes is elected for the remainder of the term of office.
      • If a majority of voters vote “no” on the first question, then the recall has failed, and the governor will remain in office.

Will there be in-person voting locations?

  • Yes. In-person voting locations will be open across the county for four days. From Saturday, Sept. 11 through Monday, Sept. 13 they will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Election Day, the hours will change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at both the in-person voting locations and the Registrar’s office.
  • Voters can also take advantage of early voting starting Aug. 16 at the Registrar’s office. Hours will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

What do you need to do?

  • Be vote ready! Check your voter registration information. Make sure your residence and, if different, your mailing address is up to date.
  • Have you moved or changed your name? Whether you are new to San Diego County or just moved down the street you need to re-register to vote.
  • Are you a first-time voter? If you want to participate in the upcoming election, you must be registered to vote – it takes less than 2 minutes.
