Nearly 1,300 polling locations open for primary voting

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The primary election has officially reached California and San Diegans had no shortage of locations to cast their vote.

 According to the Registrar of Voters, 55 to 60 percent of San Diegans are expected to vote by the time the polls close at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Almost a third of mail ballots were turned in ahead of election day, according to the Registrar of Voters.

Voters have 1298 locations where they can cast a ballot or turn in a mail ballot. Some voting locations are a bit unusual — a fencing center, an auto body shop and a few funeral homes are on the list of locations.

A high number of voters — San Diego County has over 1.5 million registered voters—may delay election results but some updates should emerge as soon as polling closes at 8 p.m, according to the Registrar of Voters.

“The polls close at 8 p.m. Within minutes, the results should come through for the ballots that were mailed in, submitted at drop-off points before Election Day or during early voting at the Registrar’s office,” according to the County of San Diego communications center.
