Same Day Voter Registration available for those who missed deadline in Santa Barbara County

Posted at 12:26 PM, Oct 29, 2018

People who missed the deadline to register to vote in Santa Barbara County will have another option for the upcoming election.

Voters who missed the October 22 deadline, but still want to vote on November 6 can visit county election offices from now through election day. They can register, vote, and seal their ballot on site.

Voters can also register to vote online during the same time frame, but they will have to go to a county elections office to get their ballot and turn it in.

Previously, voters who missed the voter registration deadline didn’t get to vote in the election, but Conditional Voter Registration, or Same Day Voter Registration, allows a voter to register and vote on the same day after the deadline.

There are three elections offices in Santa Barbara County:

Santa Barbara, 4440-A Calle Real
8 a.m. To 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, except holidays

Lompoc, 401 E. Cypress Street, Room 102
9 a.m. To 4 p.m. (closed 12-1) Monday-Friday, except holidays

Santa Maria, 511 E. Lakeside Parkway, Suite 134
8 a.m. To 5 p.m. (closed 12-1) Monday-Friday, except holidays

All three offices will be open on Saturday, November 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Election Day, November 6 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
