Dozens of candidates in the city and county of San Diego are asking for your vote this year, but a number of them haven't always cast ballots themselves in past elections.

KPBS pulled records from the San Diego and Orange County registrars of voters to show when candidates registered to vote, what party (or parties) they registered with and whether they neglected to vote in past elections.

In the city of San Diego, we included races for mayor, city attorney, city council and the San Diego Unified school board. We also included races for San Diego County supervisor, U.S. House and the state Legislature.

You can see the original records here.
