SAN DIEGO — Early voting is in full swing at the Registrar of Voters headquarters Monday morning and a record half-million mail-in ballots have already been turned in ahead of tomorrow's Election Day. 
Here are some fun stats on how San Diegans are responding to the call to get out the vote:
  • Approximately 4,000 people have come to the Registrar's office in the last 28 days to vote in person. It's the only place for in-person early voting
  • Registrar sent our 1.1 million mail-in ballots this year
  • Registrar has received about 500,000 of them back so far 
  • Ballots are printed in five different languages

Things to know: 

  • There are 25 places you can drop off your ballot today, including libraries
  • You can drop off your ballot at any polling place tomorrow
  • Polls close at 8 p.m. in San Diego tomorrow
  • If you're going to mail in your ballot, it must be postmarked by tomorrow and it must be received by the Registrar within three days of the election. Because the third day would be Veteran's Day, the Registrar will accept them until Saturday.
  • The Registrar said if you haven't put your ballot in the mail yet, it's best to just drop it off at a polling place to make sure it's received in time
