I have put together a more detailed demographic breakdown for various jurisdictions in this excel file. Each jurisdiction is its own worksheet within the file. The jurisdictions included are: Countywide, City of San Diego, San Diego City Council (Districts 1, 3, 5, 7, 9), Supervisor District 3, 52nd Congressional District, and Chula Vista City Council – District 4.

If you have questions on any of these breakdowns, or would like a breakdown on a specific jurisdiction not listed, please e-mail me at

Note: These returns are based on data provided by the Registrar of Voters to Political Data Inc. Accordingly, there is likely a delay of at least 1-2 days relative to the actual number of ballots returned.
