To be eligible to register and vote in California, you must:
While voter registration is continuous, in order to be eligible to vote in an up- coming election you must register to vote by 29 days before the election. For the March 26, 1996 Presidential Primary, that deadline was February 26, so it is now too late to register to vote in this election. But why not register anyway so that you'll be eligible to vote in the November 5, 1996 General Election?
Forms are available in a number of locations, including by calling Secretary of State Bill Jones' Voter Registration Hotline at 1-800-345-VOTE. There is also a Spanish-language registration hotline at 1-800-232-VOTA. Secretary Jones is committed to 100% participation by eligible citizens, so do your part -- register, and encourage your eligible friends, neighbors, family members, and co-workers to register to vote today!
Registration forms are also available from your county clerk or registrar of voters, whose phone number you may find under "Voter Information" on this home page web site. You can also frequently find forms at public libraries, post offices, Dept. of Motor Vehicles offices, and many other government offices.
