Californians who want to vote in upcoming elections must already be registered to vote, or have their voter registration application delivered to their county elections office at least 15 days before the election.
All eligible Californians can register to vote online.
Voters must be U.S. citizens, California residents and at least 18 years old on Election Day. They must also not be in prison, nor on parole nor serving a state prison sentence in county jail, among other crime- and courts-related restrictions.
Voters have to re-register if they have moved to a new permanent residence, changed their name or changed their choice of political party.
Paper applications are available at local county elections offices, library, post office or DMV branch.
