When you get ready to head to the polls on election day, here are a few tips to make your day successful:

Voter Empowerment

1. Register to vote and check which political party you're registered with.

2. Read up on candidates and ballot measures. 

3. Know your polling location. If you don't know your polling location, visit the San Diego County Registrar of Voters to find out where you vote. Plan accordingly to make sure you have enough time to complete your ballot.

4. Secure a babysitter or take shifts with other parents so everyone can take the time to vote. 

5. Know your voting rights. For instance, if you are not on the list of registered voters or someone asks for your ID, you have options. Before you go, read the rights every voter has in California.

6. You can take a sample ballot or a list of candidates with you to the polling locations. You can even bring in an endorsement list, just as long as that item you have does not contain any campaign advertisements.

7. If you need help voting, you are allowed to have a family member, a friend or caregiver in the booth to assist you.

8. If you are unsure about something on your ballot, ask for assistance from an election official. Do not be embarrassed to ask for help.

9. Don't feel rushed. Take your time when you enter the voting booth.

10. Be prepared to stand in line. There is a good chance you will be standing in line at some polling locations in order to vote.

Remember, you can always contact EHC if you have any questions by calling (619) 474-0220 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information. Make sure you get out to vote and encourage your neighbors to do the same.
