General Election, November 3, 2020

Monday, October 19, 2020 is the deadline to register online or by mail to vote in November's election.

If you are not registered, click here to register or check your registration status.

Many people who thought they were registered by the Department of Motor Vehicles were not actually registered because they did not return the voter registration form in addition to checking the box on the DMV form. If you did not do both, please check your registration status using the link above.

If you miss the online and mail registration deadline, you can still register to vote at early voting locations and even on Election Day, then file a provisional ballot.

Anyone can vote in November if they are:

  • a U.S. citizen and California resident,
  • 18 years old or older on Election Day,
  • not in state or federal prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony, and
  • have not been found mentally incompetent to vote by a court.

According to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's office, residents can register in one of the following ways:

  • Mail a completed voter registration form
    (you can pick up a voter registration form at most government buildings);
  • In person at one of the RR/CC offices or most government buildings;
  • Call (800) 481-VOTE, 800-815-2666, Option 2.

People who were previously registered in Los Angeles County but who did not re-register after they moved (within the County's borders) can vote at the polling place for their new address. They will be asked to vote a provisional ballot and provide their new address and previous address on the provisional ballot envelope.

New citizens are encouraged to vote! If you have participated in a Citizen and Immigration Services (CIS) ceremony, you can register to vote. To make sure new citizens have a chance to vote, registration deadlines and voting procedures are different.

For further information on registering to vote, please see the California Secretary of State’s website where you can also find voting resources, including instructional videos in multiple languages.

Please see the California Secretary of State and VOTE.org for further information.
