Voter registration forms must be submitted to the Elections Office 15 days prior to an election in order to vote.
A citizen of the United States, who is:
1. A resident of California,
2. A person not in prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony, and
3. A person at least 18 years of age by the date of the next election.
1. Upon your arrival at your polling place, you must announce your name and address (party affiliation if primary election) to the poll worker.
2. When your name and address have been located, the poll worker will ask you to sign your name on the roster. If your name is not on the list, you may be at the wrong polling place. Check the polls' address on your sample ballot. If the polls officer is unable to solve the problem, you can call the Registrar of Voters Office at 1-800-881-VOTE or 909-387-8300. You may still vote. However, you will be given a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots are used when the voter's registration cannot be immediately verified. When the ballot is returned to the Registrar of Voters Office, the voter's information is researched and upon verification of the registration, the ballot is counted.
3. If your name is on the roster, the poll officer will issue you your correct ballot.
4. A greeter clerk will then offer you a privacy sleeve. Instructions for voting are located on the outside cover of the ballot. Go to a voting booth, vote your ballot, fold and remove the top portion of the ballot, return to the roster table, and place your ballot in the red ballot box.
