“There is also a new opportunity for California citizens who missed the voter registration deadline – conditional voter registration,” Secretary of State Alex Padilla said in a press release sent out on Election Day. “If you missed the regular voter registration deadline, you may not be able to vote at your local polling place on Election Day, but you still have an opportunity to cast a ballot. Simply go to your county election office – or a designated satellite location – and complete the conditional voter registration process by filling out a voter registration card and a ballot. Once county elections officials complete the standard voter registration verification process, your ballot will be processed and your vote will be counted.”

Voter registration is at an all-time high across the state, according to Padilla.
