Early voting underway for general election

Oct 27, 2022 | County

Voting on Nov. 8, 2022, the general election is underway.
The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters has delivered all mail ballots and voter information guides to the U.S. Postal Service for each of the county’s 1.15 million active registered voters.
The county’s voters, however, do not have to wait for Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, or have to wait to receive a ballot in the mail, to vote early.
Voters can obtain and cast a ballot at the Registrar of Voters office at 777 E. Rialto Avenue in San Bernardino during regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office will also be open for voting on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Beginning Tuesday, Nov. 1, four additional early vote sites will open in Apple Valley, Joshua Tree, Ontario and Victorville. These sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Nov. 1 through Saturday, Nov. 5 and on Monday, Nov. 7.
An early vote site is just one of four secure ways to cast a ballot in San Bernardino County.
Voters may also mail their voted ballot for free. The county has pre-paid the postage on the return envelopes. Ballots must be postmarked on or before Tuesday, Nov. 8 to be eligible to be counted.
The Registrar of Voters also has 76 mail ballot drop-off locations throughout the county that will be open through 8 p.m. on Election Day. To find a location closest to them, voters may use the Mail Ballot Drop-Off Locations tool on the Registrar of Voters website www.SBCountyElections.com. Drop-off boxes on the mountain are located at the three branch libraries in Blue Jay, Crestline and Running Springs; they will be available until 8 p.m. on Nov. 8.
On Tuesday, Nov. 8, voters may also cast their ballots from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at their neighborhood polling place or the Registrar of Voters office.
Eligible citizens who have not previously voted had until Oct. 24 to register to vote online or with a paper voter registration application. After Oct. 24, new voters must conditionally register to vote in person at the Registrar of Voters office, an early vote site or a polling place. They will then be able to cast a provisional ballot in the general election.
County voter information guides, which were mailed out beginning on Thursday, Oct. 6, include a sample ballot, candidate statements, early voting sites and other important information about this election.
Voters can also access their county voter information guide by visiting the Registrar of Voters website, www.SBCountyElections.com, and clicking on the election link.
Voters can find their assigned neighborhood polling place on the back cover of their county voter information guide, by using the My Elections Gateway application on the Registrar of Voters website or by calling (909) 387-8300.
