HOW & WHERE TO REGISTER TO VOTE
To register to vote, a person needs to complete and sign a Voter Registration Form and mail it to the Elections Office of the County Clerk-Recorder-Registrar. These forms are pre-addressed and postage paid. (Some forms carry the Secretary of State’s address in Sacramento or the address of another county – these forms can be used also.)
Voter registration forms are available at the Elections Office, 2956 Richardson Dr., Auburn, CA. Forms are also available at:
- Post Offices
- Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs)
- City Clerks Offices
- Public Libraries
- Chambers of Commerce
- High Schools
You may also call the Elections Office, (530) 886-5650, to have one mailed to you. You may also complete an online Voter Registration Card here.
Certain voters face life-threatening situations may qualify for confidential voter status. For more information, please contact the Secretary of State’s Safe At Home program.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR AN ELECTION
The close of registration is 15 days prior to an election (October 19, 2020). To be eligible to vote you must register on or before the deadline (i.e. vote by mail, at a polling place). However, during the period of 14 days prior to Election Day through and including Election Day, an individual can go to the Elections Office to conditionally register and vote a ballot, provided they reside in Placer County and have not already turned in a voted ballot at another county/state elections office.
Once you are registered, you will remain on the rolls and be eligible to vote until you move out of the county or become ineligible. Failure to vote in an election does not make you ineligible. To find out if you are already registered to vote in Placer County contact our office.
