Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day – and a reminder that you must be registered to vote if you want to cast a ballot in the Nov. 3 Presidential General Election.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, every active registered voter in California will receive a ballot in the mail for the Nov. 3 election. The Registrar encourages you to vote safer at home. If you vote at the polls, expect long lines.
The Registrar’s office is preparing ballots for mailing and they will start going out to registered voters the week of Oct. 5. If your voter information is up to date you should receive your ballot the same week.
The Registrar encourages everyone to register as early as possible, but advises of the following deadlines: Until Oct. 19, you can register online to vote or register by mail with a postmark of that date. After that, with conditional voter registration, you can register in person through Nov. 3, Election Day.
