Staffers sort ballots in California, Jan. 22, 2008.

Starting Monday, voters who have completed their mail ballots for the Nov. 8 general election can drop them off at libraries and a few other places around San Diego County.

The drop-off sites will be available during their normal business hours.

County elections officials have been encouraging voters to sign-up for mail ballots and return them early because there are so many items to vote on. A two-card ballot is being used for the first time in San Diego County.

Because of the size of the ballot, postage costs 67 cents to mail them back.

"More than 60 percent of county voters use mail ballots and that number continues to rise," Registrar Michael Vu said. "It's convenient for the voter, it helps with the timely return of mail ballots and decreases the high volume of voters dropping off mail ballots at polling places on Election Day."

The library locations include:

— San Diego, North Park Library, 3795 31st St.

— San Diego, Pacific Beach Library, 4275 Cass St.

— San Diego, Scripps Miramar Ranch Library, 10301 Scripps Lake Drive

The registrar's office is also open for early voting from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The last day to request a mail ballot from the registrar was Nov. 1.
