Conditional Voter Registration

Conditional Voter Registration is a new safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information for an election. While you may not be able to vote at your regular polling place or vote by mail, there is still an opportunity to cast a ballot by completing the conditional voter registration process. 

Eligible citizens who miss the deadline can go to their county elections office or a designated satellite location to register and vote conditionally. Their ballots will be processed once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process. Voters can complete the conditional voter registration process 14 days before an election all the way through to that Election Day.

Have additional questions about your local conditional voter registration locations? Contact your county elections office.

Special Note: Voters in counties that have implemented the Voter's Choice Act can access conditional voter registration at any Vote Center in their county.
