Conditional Voter Registration Begins for November 6, 2018 Election

 Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections (VRE) reminds residents that Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) begins today. This extends the existing traditional voter registration deadline to eligible voters, allowing Sacramento County residents to conditionally register and vote a CVR ballot from October 23, through Election Day.
Eligible residents who missed the October 22 registration deadline may complete a voter registration form available at the Elections Office or at any Vote Center. Upon completion of the form, a VRE representative will provide the individual with a CVR provisional ballot which must be voted at the time and location it is received. Once the registration form has been processed and eligibility is verified the CVR ballot is counted.

Residents who are unsure of their voter registration status may use the voter registration lookup on the website to determine their status.
