How do I register to Vote?

To register to vote in California, you must be:

  • A United States citizen and a resident of California;
  • 18 years old or older on Election Day;
  • Not currently serving a state or federal prison term for the conviction of a felony; and
  • Not currently found mentally incompetent to vote by a court.
