Register to vote!

Ryan Peters, Staff writer

The Nov. 6 general election is rapidly approaching, and the last day to register to vote is Oct. 22.

To register to vote in California, you must be at least 18 years of age by the day of the election. You must also be a resident of California and a citizen of the United States.

In an effort to make registering more convenient than ever, the state of California implemented an online registration form on Sept. 19, giving voters a little over a month to register in a digital fashion.

It is the voter’s responsibility to fill out a new form if they change addresses, change their name, or would like to change party preference, and this can now be done online as well.

For those who would like to go analog, forms can be found at post offices, libraries, and most city and county government offices. There is also a voter registration booth that shows up in front of the DVC Counseling offices on most weekdays.

To find more information on how to register for the upcoming elections, check out one of the DVC voter registration booths, or visit http://www.sos.ca.gov.
