Conditional Voter Registration still available
Contributed by County Clerk Recorder Tommy Gong
In prior elections, voters who missed the 15-day close of registration deadline were not qualified to vote in an upcoming election. Today, new legislation allows voters who missed the Oct. 22 deadline to complete a Conditional Voter Registration (or Same Day Registration) process and cast their ballots at the County Elections Office up to and including Election Day. All votes will be counted after the elections official verifies the voter’s registration and confirms the voter has not yet voted elsewhere in the current election.
The 2018 election cycle is the first time the new law is in effect for a statewide election. While voters who register late will not be able to vote at their traditional polling place, they will not lose their opportunity to cast their ballot.
