If you have not registered to vote but want to cast your ballot in the November election, it is not too late – as long as you postmark a registration card or fill out the form online today, Oct. 19.

Go to L.A. County’s Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s site and fill out an online voter registration form if you will be 18 years of age on or before Nov. 3.

If you need to change your registered voter address, political party affiliation or name, fill out the online voter registration for new voters and follow the prompts.

Missed Deadline

If you miss the deadline to register or reregister between now and Nov. 3, complete the Same-Day Voter Registration process to request your ballot in-person at a polling location. This is available to eligible citizens who submit these requests within 14 days from Election Day.

Same-day voters’ ballots are considered provisional until their eligibility has been verified by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office.

Check Registration Status

If you changed your address through the California Department of Motor Vehicles, check your registration status. After selecting the option to update your voter registration you must fill out additional forms – it is not an automatic update.

Register to vote or check your voter registration here.

New Citizen Voters

If you are a newly naturalized citizen wanting to vote and have participated in a Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) ceremony you can register to vote today.

Conviction and Inmate Voters

If you have a misdemeanor or felony conviction, are awaiting trial or sentencing, on probation but not parole and other certain conditions, you are eligible to register to vote. For more information call 800-815-2666.

If you are incarcerated, there are specific conditions that allow you to vote, like if you on probation, in county jail for most conditions

The inmate must complete an Inmate Request form and check Voter Information. The voting coordinator will contact them – but today is the registration deadline for inmate voting.

Confidential Addresses

Do not use the regular registration form if you are part of the Safe at Home program.

Safe at Home is a confidential address program from the California Secretary of State as a substitute mailing address for those who might need to keep their address unknown from those who might want to cause them harm – victims of domestic or sexual violence, stalking and more – and free to those who qualify.

If you think this service can benefit you or someone you know, look at the website or call 877-322-5227. Call the hotline to register to vote through the program.

Other Services

For multilingual services, including ways to request non-English voting materials, visit LAVote.net’s Multilingual Services Program and scroll down to the language needed. You can call 800-815-2666 (select option 3) or 800-481-8683 to request assistance.

For most, identification is not needed at vote centers.

However, if you are a first-time voter and did not provide your driver license or California ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security number on your registration form, you may be asked to show some form of identification with your mailing address. See the full list of qualifying documents.

If you are already registered and ready to vote, see ways to cast your ballot.

Alhambra has two voting centers opening for in-person voting on Oct. 30 – Granada Park and the County Department of Public Works – and an additional drop-off box already collecting ballots at the library.

Look up other cities’ voting locations, dates and hours or drop-box locations on the state’s website.
