Absentee ballot deadlines
The deadline to register online and by mail for the November General Election is October 19!
There are three ways to register:
In Person: you can register in person up to and on Election Day. Simply visit your county election office, polling place, or vote center to register to vote conditionally.
What you will need to complete your voter registration online, by mail, or in person:
Your California driver license or California identification card number
The last four digits of your social security number
Your date of birth.
To register to vote in California, you must be:
A United States citizen
A resident of California
18 years of age or older on Election Day (although 16- and 17-year-olds can pre-register to vote)
Voting Options for College Students
As a Californian living away from home while attending a college, trade school or technical school, you may choose to register to vote using your home away from home address you use while at school or your traditional home address.
Choosing which address to use when you register to vote is a personal decision. Whatever you decide, you may not register to vote in two places during the same election cycle.
