Register To Vote
You can check your voter registration status anytime to make sure it is current, and you are eligible to vote in the next election. You should be registered to vote at least 15 days before an election. If you missed the registration deadline for an upcoming election, you can conditionally register and vote provisionally. Learn how.
Voting material mailings begin 29 days before the election. To make sure your voting materials are promptly delivered to you, please verify that you are registered correctly.
If you have recently submitted a voter registration form, please note that it can take several days to process your registration.
You may register to vote in California, if you are:
- A U.S. Citizen
- A California Resident
- At least 18 years old on or before the next election
- Not in state or federal prison, or on parole for a felony conviction
- Not declared mentally incompetent by court action
- 16 or 17 years old, and meet all the other requirements to vote
- You will be automatically registered to vote on your 18th birthday

If you recently moved, changed your name or want to change your political party, you need to re-register to vote. You do that by completing a new voter registration application. The Registrar of Voters office will recognize only your most recent registration, so you don’t need to cancel your previous registration unless you are moving out of the county.
Voter Notification Card
Within two to four weeks after registering or re-registering to vote, you will receive your Voter Notification Card in the mail. Review this card to ensure your information (political party preference, mail ballot voter status and address) is entered correctly.
If you are moving to another county or state, you may cancel your local registration here. You may also use this form to cancel the registration of someone who has passed away.
