Are you interested in running for office in San Diego County? If so, you must meet certain requirements to become a candidate. To be eligible, you must be an American citizen and at least 18 years of age. The simplest way to register to vote is to submit your information online. However, your county election official must still verify the information you provide.
If you have a California driver's license or identification card, the Department of Motor Vehicles will share a copy of your signature on file so you can transfer it to your voter registration. No matter how you submit your registration request, the same guarantees exist when it comes to determining a person's eligibility to vote, avoiding duplicate registrations, and adding a person to California's official voter rolls. Your county election official will contact you when your voter registration request is approved or if more information is needed to confirm your eligibility. You can check the status of your voter registration by visiting My Voter Status or by contacting your county election official.
You can also contact the elections office of the county where you plan to conduct the voter registration campaign. There is no limit to the number of paper voter registration applications a person can obtain. However, depending on the volume of applications and the number of applications in stock, the Secretary of State or county election officials may ask applicants to accept fewer applications and to return later if they need more. The Secretary of State requires the applicant to complete a distribution declaration form and a county elections official can request something similar.
The Secretary of State has established a toll-free telephone line to request voter registration forms and other election materials and to report suspected voting or registration irregularities. The number is (800) 345-VOTE (868). For help in other languages, see the contact information. If a written candidate is one of the two with the most votes in the primary elections, they can go on to the general elections.
All candidates, including those who would have used the previous independent nomination process, can run for voter-nominated office in the primary elections. However, if no candidate has been nominated in the primary election for a voter-nominated office, a candidate can use the independent nomination process to stand in the general election. All primary candidates for a voter-nominated office are listed on a single ballot, and only the two candidates with the most votes in the primary election will advance to the general election. The two that get the most votes go on to the general elections regardless of the size of the list of candidates, their party preference, or whether a candidate receives the majority of all votes cast in the primary election.
The president can stand for general elections as a presidential elector through the independent nomination process or as a written candidate for presidential elector. Only candidates running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction or candidates for office nominated by voters in special elections can win bluntly if they obtain more than 50 percent of votes in primary elections.
