Pssst! Wanna Know A Secret?


Tired of All the Campaign Mailers and Phone Calls?


Complete your Vote By Mail ballot and send it in/drop it off AND within a week, most of the mailers/calls will stop. Really! The faster the Registrar gets your ballot, the faster they can let campaigns know you've voted and the faster you get off the contact lists.

And, you can download/print Dems for Equality's Voters Guide (by clicking on the Guide to the right) to help make sure you are voting for progressive, equality supporting candidates. Even if you'd rather wait to vote at the polls on June 3rd, the Voters Guide can still be taken with you.

Remember, if you've moved or otherwise need to register, the deadline to register to vote is May 19th. You can register online at The deadline to vote is June 3rd. Votes not received by the Registrar when the polls close on that day will NOT be counted - even if you mailed your Vote by Mail ballot before election day - so vote NOW and avoid the risk. You can mail your ballot or drop it off at the Registrar's office at 5600 Overland Ave, San Diego, CA. 92123 (8:01 AM - 5:00 PM, M-F). On June 3rd, you can drop off your ballot at the Registrar's or at any polling place in San Diego.

It's easy. It's fun. IT'S IMPORTANT!
