Register online to vote, or change your name, residential address, or party affiliation
You may now register online to vote. You can also use this service to make any changes to your registration, such as your name, residential address, or party affiliation (or preference). The process will be completed on the California Secretary of State's website, where you will be asked to provide your California driver's license or state identification number and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
Please note: Allow a minimum of 48 hours for online applications to process. Registration is not an instant process and requires individual review. Make sure all fields are filled in correctly.
