Same-Day Voter Registration:

Did you know that California has same-day voter registration??

The requirement to register to vote in advance has proved to be a hurdle for many Americans. Same-day registration encourages new voters to enter the process, and also allows existing voters to update or correct errors in their registrations.  Almost half of the states in the U.S. have implemented same-day voter registration. Also known as Conditional Voter Registration, same-day registration is a safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information for an election.

Eligible voters who need to register or re-register to vote within 14 days of an election can complete this process to register and vote at their county elections office, polling place, or vote center. Their ballots will be processed and counted once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process.
