Register to Vote Online
California On-line Voter Registration
Complete this on-line form and the Secretary of State of California will mail a typed registration form to you. After you receive the pre-typed form, just sign it and mail it to your county election official. They recommend you use this service at least one month prior to election day to avoid missing your opportunity to vote due to postal delays.
Once you receive your form in the mail, which takes approximately 7 to 14 days, you must sign, date, and return it by mail to the county elections official on the return address side of the voter registration card. Please make sure all of the information is correct and drop it back in the mail. State of California will pay for the postage!
For security purposes, full on-line voter registration is not yet available and current law requires the voter's original signature be affixed to the VRC, by completing the information requested in the on-line form of the state website, a registration card with your information will be printed and mailed to you.
You can also download the voter registration form, print it out, fill it out completely, sign it, and mail it back directly to:
