County Registrar Open for Early Voting

Voters can cast their ballots at the county registrar from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday instead of waiting until Tuesday.


San Diego County residents can vote Saturday at the registrar's office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ahead of Tuesday's primary election.

"We offer Saturday hours because we know people are busy and voting on Election Day Tuesday may not be convenient," Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler said. "In addition to providing mail ballots and staffing polling locations, we open the Saturday before the election to give voters another option to cast ballots or drop off their vote-by-mail ballots.''

Early voters should expect a line at the office, which is located at 5201 Ruffin Rd., Suite I–just off Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and west of Interstate 15.

On Tuesday, more than 1,400 polling places will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., including the registrar's office. You can search online for the nearest polling place to you.

Patch will be covering live results on Tuesday evening, with many of the Patch editors reporting live from Election Central at Golden Hall in downtown San Diego. Look out for stories on many of the key races that evening.

if you hit the button for the 'nearest polling place'....it pulls up the ballot... since i have no political preference the dems and american independent party will allow me to vote for one of their presidential candidates if i will claim their party...i think i'll pass on the chance to vote for "mad max riekse' for president...tempting as it may be.... there are 2 dozen people running for u.s senator...'oily tater tots' is on the ballet for senator as gop... only two propositions this time...that's a nice change of pace ...

Not sure where to post this, but it is too good to not post at all: SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A radical plan to slash public employee pension benefits gets voted on by the residents of Silicon Valley's San Jose on Tuesday - a decision that could set an important precedent for many other cities, not only in California but across the nation. "The nation's 10th-largest city is also one of the wealthiest, but over the past several years it has cut its municipal workforce by a quarter, laying off cops and firefighters, shuttering libraries and letting street repairs fall by the wayside. The problem? Mayor Chuck Reed says it's simple: Retiree benefit costs eat up more than a quarter of the city budget - and are growing at a double-digit rate. The solution he is pushing at the ballot box, after city council approval, would slash benefits for workers, increase employee contributions - and almost certainly prompt a precedent-setting legal challenge from the public employee unions." http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/02/us-usa-california-pensions-idUSBRE8510BQ20120602

it's b.s to push off our financial problems on the line worker.... have you ever met a 'rich' retired teacher? have you ever seen a 'poor' political figure...? i'm going through i.b.'s budget and yea, there is a lot of insurance companies and benefit pays...but it pales in comparison to the money we are throwing out on 'consultants', lawyers, and overall bad business practices... our mayor tries to say the same thing...but when i look at the budget i see the receipts of our mayor's personal life ...turned in like our city budget is his personal endowment..... request the city's a/p logs...see where the money is really going.... if the only solution the city officials can come up with is to squeeze the line worker and the citizenry then we don't' need them any more...

in december of last year our city manager, public safety director, community development director, city clerk, & human resources director all have $420.00 checks cut in their names with the memo: "2011 hc reimbursement''.... "hc"......what do you think that stands for...happy campers...?? every one of those pigs make the maximum allowed by law....plus they're throwing every random receipt they find in their pockets to the city as their 'expenses'...they can pay their own health care.... ....of course they'll soon be on the 'prison health care system'...

Lineworkers should not have to pay their own hc. It is only fair. Anyone who asks them to, should be thrown in a prison guarded by line workers that don't pay for hc.

Have I ever met a rich retired teacher? Just because I haven't met them doesn't mean they don't exist. There 5259 retired California teachers who collect over $100,000 in yearly pension payments. And more retire every day. Go ahead and check out how many take home over $250,000. http://database.californiapensionreform.com/?vttable=calstrs

let me point out a retired teacher in our community - it's the little old man that you see walking up and down palm avenue twice a day....he is a retired history teacher.. the old man and his wife taught in our schools for 40 years...they are not living in the lap of luxury....they are good people that live a humble life.... talk to the old man...ask him how much he's making...find out the truth... do i think there's a problem in the schools? absolutely...and once i clean up city hall i'm heading to the school and i'll dig through their financials and we'll see exactly who is stuffing the money into their pockets... ...but i bet you $5.00 that it's not going to be the line workers...it's going to be the people in admin and all of those auxiliary positions that they've created...

"i'll dig through their financials and we'll see exactly who is stuffing the money into their pockets..." On this, I believe you possess the unique skill to find out what is being hid. From your resume: "i'm an accountant..i tell people all the time - learn to hide money...stay poor until you're rich because if you get into 'middle class' you'll live in poverty for the rest of your life..." http://lajolla.patch.com/articles/poll-would-you-vote-for-higher-taxes-to-save-school-college-funding#comment_3499539
