Tuesday, Feb. 18, is the deadline for citizens to register to vote for the 2020 Presidential Primary Election. Voters who are already registered should re-register to vote if they have changed their signature, name, or address, or want to change their party affiliation. Voters can check their registration status by visiting www.SBCountyElections.com and logging into the My Elections Gateway application. Registered voters can also use My Elections Gateway to find their polling place, voting districts, and other personalized election information.
Citizens may register to vote online at www.SBCountyElections.com. Voter registration applications are also available at the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters and throughout San Bernardino County at post offices, city clerks’ offices, county libraries, and the Department of Motor Vehicles. A map of these locations is available on the Registrar of Voters website.
Citizens who miss the Feb. 18 voter registration deadline still have an opportunity to register and vote in this election. A new California law allows for this conditional voter registration option beginning Feb. 19 through Election Day.
A conditional voter registration application must be submitted in person at the Registrar of Voters or an early vote site on or before Election Day, or at a polling place on Election Day. After completing a voter registration application, the voter will be provided with a provisional ballot to vote at that location. Visit www.SBCountyElections.com to view a complete list of these locations, addresses, and hours. It is recommended that individuals complete the conditional voter registration process before Election Day.
For more information about this election, including the locations and hours of the additional early vote sites that open on Feb. 25, visit the Registrar of Voters website, www.SBCountyElections.com, or call (909) 387-8300.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is excited to announce our partnership with Ring and the Neighbors App. Detectives and station personnel from across the county completed their training today and out stations are now live. Station staff are able to receive information and interact with residents through the app. Customers with a Ring camera will be able to share videos with their local Sheriff’s station. The Neighbors App connects communities with the goal of creating safer and stronger neighborhoods and one of the benefits is you do not need to own a Ring device to use the app.
While the Ring system and Neighbors App are great tools for interaction and sharing information, they are not monitored 24/7. The Neighbors App is not designed to replace traditional crime reporting. If you are a victim of a crime, or you want to report suspicious activity, please call your local San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department – Dispatch Center. For emergencies call 9-1-1. For all other reports call our nonemergency lines: Valley residents call (909) 387-8313 and Desert residents call (760) 956-5001.

A fatal plant disease – Huanglongbing – has been found in California and without support from California residents it could be a death sentence to California’s backyard and commercial citrus trees.
While Huanglongbing (HLB) is not harmful to humans, there is no cure and once a citrus tree is infected it will die. The disease has decimated Florida citrus, and now that HLB is here, California’s beloved citrus trees are also at risk. The disease is spread by an insect called the Asian citrus psyllid, which can be found throughout California – the number one fresh citrus fruit producing state in the nation. By working together, we can all save our citrus trees. California homeowners – 60 percent of whom own citrus trees – play an important role in protecting citrus in our state and are being asked to protect their backyard trees by searching for signs of the pest and disease.
