Are you qualified to vote, but haven't registered yet?
To qualify in California, you must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old on Election Day, and a resident of California. You may not be qualified if you have a felony criminal conviction or currently in a correctional facility, or if a court says you are mentally incompetent.
You'll need to re-register to vote if you moved or changed your name since the last election. Should you want to change your political party, you'll need to re-register, too.
You can register to vote up to 15 days before an election. Our next election is Tuesday, November 4. That means the last day for registration is October 20, 2014.
Three Ways to Register to Vote
You can register in person. In San Benito County, go to the Registrar of Voters office located at 440 Fifth Street, Room 206. That's the second floor of the old courthouse.
Your can register by mail. Pick up a voter registration application at the public library, U.S. post office, Department of Motor Vehicle office, or San Benito County Registrar of Voters office.
You can register online at the California Online Voter Registration website.
There are no excuses. Go out and vote!
