California’s gubernatorial recall election is a few weeks away and Aug. 30 is the deadline for residents to register to vote by mail.

Antonia Hutzell, San Diego County Registrar Office spokesperson told The Epoch Times 221 in-person voting locations will be open beginning Sept. 11 for county residents to cast their votes.

“Registration forms returned in the mail must be postmarked by today, Aug. 30,” she said. “If you want to drop off your registration form at the Registrar’s office you must do so by 5 p.m. today. Voters may also register online until midnight.”

Residents who miss the registration deadline will need to travel to the county registrar’s office or any voting location to register conditionally and vote provisionally.

In Orange County, over 250,000 ballots were sent by mail and returned to the registrar’s office as of Aug 27.

“As of today, 273,696 Vote-by-Mail ballots have been returned to our office,” OC Registrar’s office said in an Aug. 27 tweet. “You may return your ballot by dropping it off at any one of our 116 official ballot drop boxes or by mail.”

While ballot drop boxes are available now, on Sept. 4, county residents can begin voting in person at a location near them.

California residents who are not sure about their voter registration status can check to see if they are registered to vote before the midnight deadline.
