register to vote
If there are a multitude of items on the ballot and you only vote on one of them, your vote will still be counted.
The deadline to register to vote for any election is 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before that election.
If you will be 18 years old by the election day, but are not yet 18 by that registration deadline, you can still register to vote.
If you are homeless, including living out of your car, you can register to vote.
There is no literacy requirement.
You can register to vote online, (using a computer, iPad, tablet or smartphone) at http://registertovote.ca.gov
There have been elections that ended in a tie, in part because many people did not vote.
From Rock The Vote: “Millennials have the potential to be the largest voting bloc in our country but are voting at a fraction of their size, with an estimated 30 million young people staying home in 2012.”
