Register To Vote

October 23, 2012 by  

Register To Vote, Monday is California’s deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 6 presidential general election. And if you haven’t done so already, you probably can do it right now from the comfort of your own home. Any mail-in applications postmarked by Monday are fine, but if you’re registering online at, your application must be submitted — not just started but completely finished — by midnight Monday.

More than 544,000 Californians submitted voter registration applications online in the new system’s first month, according to Secretary of State Debra Bowen. “Given all of the important issues on the November ballot, I am delighted so many Californians want to make their voices heard,” she said. “Since registering to vote is easier than ever with the quick online option, there is no excuse for not being ready to vote on Election Day!” Many other Californians have submitted paper applications in recent weeks, but county elections officials still must verify eligibility and check for duplicate records before adding someone to the official voter roll.

And many of the online applications are registration updates rather than first-time registrants, so this doesn’t mean there’ll be 544,000 new voters as a result of the new system. Final, official registration statistics will be available Nov. 2. If you prefer paper to digital, voter-registration applications are available at post offices, public libraries and many government offices. To register to vote in California, you must be a U.S. citizen; a California resident; 18 years or older on Election Day; not found by a court to be mentally incompetent; and not currently incarcerated in a state prison or county jail, or on parole, post-release community supervision or probation for a felony.
