Registration Deadline Approaching and ​​​Conditional Voter Registration to Begin

Monday, May 23, is the last day to register to vote, update voter's residential address or change par​ty affiliation for the June 7, 2022, Statewide Direct Primary Election. Residents are encouraged to register at www.registertovote.ca.gov or pick-up a voter registration card at any Sacramento Public Library, post office or the Voter Registration and Elections (VRE) Office at 7000 65th Street, Suite A, Sacramento, CA 95823. In order to be a registered voter, the voter registration form must be filled out completely, signed and postmarked by May 23, or hand-delivered to the VRE Office by 5:00 p.m. on May 23.

​Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) begins Tuesday, May 24. Eligible residents who missed the May 23, registration deadline may complete a voter registration form available at the VRE 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.

Voters are encouraged to vote their ballot, sign their pink Vote by Mail envelope and return their ballots early. Information on the days and hours of operation for Ballot Drop Boxes or upcoming Vote Centers is available on the VRE website at www.elections.saccounty.gov, or use the direct links in the Key Election Dates below. 

For more information, contact VRE at (916) 875-6451, or use the toll-free voter assistance hotline at (800) 762-8019. The hotline has the ability to connect voters with disabilities with TTY (Text Telephone).
