If you wish the election would just be over already, you may want to celebrate this milestone. The San Diego County Registrar of Voters is sending out mail-in ballots today. Registrar Deborah Seiler said more than 760,000 ballots will be sent out, which is more than half of the total number of ballots. She said she expects the results to reflect that.

After months of hearing about candidates and propositions, San Diego county voters will soon get to have their say. Mail-in ballots are being sent out today.

“I anticipate that, in this election, the number of ballots cast by mail will be very close to half of the total vote,” she said.

Seiler said she expects people to start receiving ballots by mid-week. They must be turned in by the time the polls close on Election Day.

Seiler said her office can begin counting mail-in ballots about 10 days before the election, but won’t release any results until after the polls close.

The deadline to register to vote is October 22.
