Registration

To be eligible to vote in an election, you must have registered 15 days before Election Day. You can register to vote online or by mailing a completed voter registration form (found in most government offices). 


Voter Eligibility

You may register to vote if you are:

  • A citizen of the United States.
  • At least 18 years of age or older on or before Election Day.
  • Not found mentally incompetent by a court of law.
You are not:
  • Serving a state prison term for a felony conviction in a County jail under contract between state and local officials.
  • On parole/probation for a felony conviction as a condition of your release from prison/jail.

What if I just moved and did not re-register?

If you were previously registered in Los Angeles County and have not re-registered since you moved within the County's borders, you can vote at the polling place for your new address. You will be asked to vote a provisional ballot and provide your new address and your previous address on the provisional ballot envelope.

Vote by Mail

Any registered voter may vote using a vote-by-mail ballot instead of going to the polls on Election Day. California law also allows any registered voter to become a permanent vote-by-mail voter. Click here to request a vote-by-mail ballot for one election or to learn more about becoming a permanent vote-by-mail voter. 

Voter Identification

The Help America Vote Act (HAVA) states that individuals registering to vote for the first time in the state/jurisdiction must provide either a valid California driver's license or state ID card number. Applicants who do not have either can provide the last four digits of their Social Security number. If the voter provides a driver's license or state ID number that can be matched to a state record, then the voter will not be required to show ID when she/he votes.

If a person registers by mail, has not previously voted in an election for federal office and:

  • Votes in person: A photo ID or a document that indicates the voter's name and residence address must be presented.
  • Votes by mail: A copy of a photo ID or a document with both the voter's name and residence address must be presented.
