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 and cast a provisional ballot.

Conditional Voter Registration is only available:

  • At the Registrar of Voters office at the County Operations Center in Kearny Mesa
  • During the 14 days prior to and including Election Day
  • To those who register in person

Conditional Voter Registration is not available at polling places on Election Day. 

How this works:

  • If you miss the registration deadline for an upcoming election, you have the option to vote by visiting the Registrar of Voters office at 5600 Overland Ave., San Diego, CA 92123
  • 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
