Q&A

How do I register to vote?

California offers voter registration online, by mail, and in person. Online voter registration is available at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. You can also request and complete a paper voter registration form and mail or hand deliver it to your county elections official to register to vote.

I just moved, do I need to re-register?

Yes you do, you must re-register if you move to a new permanent address, change your name and/or change your political party choice. The process to re-register is the same as registering as a new voter.
