Californians, today is the last day you can register to vote for the upcoming midterm election on Nov. 8.
Residents have until 11:59 p.m. to complete their registration online. To be eligible to vote, a person must be:
- A U.S. citizen and California resident
- 18 years old or older on Election Day
- Not serving a state or federal prison term conviction of a felony
- Not currently found mentally incompetent to vote by a court
To register to vote online, eligible residents will need their state driver’s license or ID card number, the last four digits of their social security number and their date of birth, the Register to Vote website stated.
People who don’t have a driver’s license or ID card number can still register to vote online but will need to complete additional steps.
Californians can check this website to see if they are a registered voter in the state if they aren’t sure.
If you miss this deadline, don’t fret, California allows same-day voter registration in person at various polling sites for early voting and on election day.
Teenagers between 16 and 17 can complete a pre-registration form, allowing them to vote on their 18th birthday.
