If you used the Google browser Tuesday, you may have noticed a bit more red, white and blue. That’s because Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day.
If you’re not already registered to vote, worry not. There are a number of ways you can register for the state of California.
You can register online today by heading to registertovote.ca.gov.
You can also register by using a paper voter registration application. You can pick one up at your county elections office, 1115 Truxtun Ave., library, Department of Motor Vehicles offices, or a U.S. post office. To request a paper voter registration application be mailed to you, call (800)345-8683.
It is important that your voter registration application, whether it be electronic or paper, be filled out completely and be postmarked or hand-delivered to your county elections office by Oct. 22.
For those who miss the Oct. 22 deadline, eligible citizens can go to their county elections office to register and vote conditionally, according to the California Secretary of State website. Those ballots will be processed once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process. Voters can complete the conditional voter registration process from Oct. 23 through Election Day on Nov. 6.
