Registration Deadline Approaching and
Conditional Voter Registration to Begin

Monday, October 24, is the last day to register to vote, update voter's residential address or change party affiliation for the November 8, 2022, General Election. Residents are encouraged to register at 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 October 24, or hand-delivered to the VRE Office by 5:00 p.m. on October 24.

Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) begins Tuesday, October 25. Eligible residents who missed the October 24, 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 ballot early. Information on the days and hours of operation for Ballot Drop Boxes or upcoming Vote Centers is available on the VRE website at, or use the direct links in the Key Election Dates below.
