Conditional Voter Registration (CVR)

Eligible San Diego County residents who miss the voter registration deadline still have an option to vote. Under California Election Law, Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) allows a prospective voter to register conditionally and cast a provisional ballot.

Conditional Voter Registration is only available in person and you will need to allow for the extra time it will take you to fill out additional forms before voting.

How this works:

  • If you miss the registration deadline for an upcoming election, you can still vote by visiting:
  • You will complete a conditional voter registration form
  • You will get a ballot and a green CVR provisional envelope
  • Mark your choices on the ballot and place it inside the CVR provisional envelope and seal it. Print and sign your name, and date the envelope
  • Once your conditional voter registration form is verified, and it is confirmed that you did not vote elsewhere in the state for the current election, your registration will become active
  • Your ballot will be removed from the CVR provisional envelope and counted
  • You will be considered registered for any future election if you are eligible to participate
