Registrar of Voters Rebecca Spencer is encouraging all businesses, nonprofit organizations, community groups and every other Californian to promote voter registration on Tuesday (Sept. 26) as part of National Voter Registration Day.
Registering to vote is easy! Register to vote online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. Paper applications are available at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters’ office, Department of Motor Vehicles offices, post offices, city clerk offices and public libraries.
The registrar’s office, 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside, will be open from 8 a.m. Tuesday (Sept. 26) until 5 p.m. to accept registration forms. California residents may register to vote if they are U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old by Election Day, not adjudicated as mentally incompetent and not precluded because of certain criminal convictions. A person must re-register to vote after moving, changing names or changing political party preference.
Call the registrar’s office at (951) 486-7200 if you have any questions about your eligibility to vote.
