There are MANY ways you can register to vote – and you can now register AND vote on November 6th:
- Voter Registration forms can be completed online at the California Secretary of State website.
- Pick up a voter registration form at libraries, post offices and the Elections Office.
- You are also likely to find volunteers with tables set up to help you register at community events (e.g., the Farmer’s Markets and the summer fairs).
- You may request to have a form mailed to you by calling (707) 253-4321 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may notice official looking statements that say you cannot register after October 15th – but that is INCORRECT! What this really means is that your ballot will not be mailed to you for the November 6th election. If you register from October 16th through November 6th, you will have to go pick up your ballot at the Elections Office or Voting Centers. The formal term for this is “Conditional Voter Registration” and your vote WILL BE COUNTED.
It is important to note that you can also continue to register to vote online after October 15th – but you will have to go pick up your ballot at the Elections Office or Voting Center.
You can register and vote the same day up to and including November 6th
This type of registration is called “Conditional Voter Registration” – which only means that the county registrar must first validate your registration, and then, when your registration is validated, your vote is counted (as long as you’ve filled out the required information and signed the outside of the ballot).
Please check with the Napa County Elections Office with any questions.
