Help me decide: vote at school or my home in California?


Reasons to vote with your permanent address (at home or in person)

  • I will be at my home (permanent) address on March 3, 2020 because I will be home for Spring Break--and I would like to vote at home, in person.
  • I know a lot about local politics at home, voting by mail in my home county will require me to do less research about the candidates on my ballot.
  • California makes it pretty easy to vote by mail, and I can have my ballot mailed to me at school so I can vote whenever I want to.
  • Statewide candidates (governor, etc) and ballot propositions are the same either place.

Reasons to vote with your local USD address (by mail or in person)

  • I will be at my campus address on March 3, 2020, because I will be on campus for Spring Break--and I would like to vote in San Diego, in person.
  • I can register with my San Diego address and get a mail ballot that I can mail anytime on or before March 3.
  • I will be able to learn about and discuss local San Diego issues with friends from school and be part of my new community.
  • I can talk about my ballot with my friends and we can vote together.
  • I don't know that much about local issues and candidates at my permanent address so I'm going to have to learn it all anyway.
  • There are plenty of ways to get up to speed on local candidates and issues, including attending the Feb 11 informational event 4-7pm in Salomon Hall in Maher.
