Today is the deadline for California voters to register for the June 7 election and still receive a mail-in ballot.

If voters miss today’s registration deadline, they can still cast a ballot. Provisional registration starts Tuesday (May 24). That will require more paperwork for verification and a possible delay in counting the vote.

“All voters will be able to vote. There just might be some extra paperwork and delayed confirmation involved,” said Fresno County Clerk James Kus.

Who Can Vote?

Voters can register conditionally through Election Day on June 7. Generally, any U.S. citizen 18 or older by June 7 is eligible to vote.

With changes to election laws in recent years, “Election Day” is a bit of a misnomer. Voters can return ballots through several methods — in-person, by the mail, drop boxes — now until the election’s conclusion in 15 days.

Kus encouraged people wanting to register to visit the official state website; or complete paperwork at the election office at 2221 Kern Street in downtown Fresno. Forms can also be found at libraries and post offices, but they would need to be mailed today.
