Important Things to Remember
In California, the deadline to register to vote for an election is 15 days before each local and statewide election day, so please register early! Forget to register in time? You can register and vote same day through a process called Conditional Voter Registration. More details can be found on the California Secretary of State's website, http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voter-registration/conditional-voter-reg/.
