What if I miss the deadline? Can I still Vote?
Yes, you can register on California’s Election Day. If you are registering or re-registering less than 15 days before an election you will need to complete the Same-Day Voter Registration process and request your ballot in person at your county elections office or polling location. For more information on voter registration and voting locations, contact your local county elections official.
Should I register to vote in my home county or where I reside in San Luis Obispo County?
You can decide. If you want to participate in the decisions for the community where you are from, or intend to return there soon, you can register to vote absentee. If you are interested to participate in the issues where you live while going to school, you can register to vote in SLO County.
Where is my polling place if I'm registered in San Luis Obispo County?
This year, because of the Voter's Choice Act every registered voter in participating counties will be delivered a ballot 28 days before Election Day.
You may also drop off your ballot at one of SLO County's Voter Service Centers
