The deadline to register to vote in order to cast a ballot in the Nov. 6 general election is Monday, Oct. 22.
Applications submitted online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov prior to midnight Monday will be honored, as will paper forms postmarked by the deadline. Paper applications are available at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters, Department of Motor Vehicle offices, post offices, public libraries and other locations, the Riverside County Registrar of Voters said Wednesday in a news release.
The Murrieta City Clerk's Office is hosting its last of four voter registration outreaches from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Murrieta Public Library, 8 Town Square.
The Registrar’s office, 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside, will be open until midnight Monday to accept registration forms. Because the forms contain personal information, and to help ensure they are received on time, the Registrar of Voters encourages voters to personally deliver or mail completed forms to the registrar’s office, while keeping the deadline in mind.
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.
For more information, contact the Registrar of Voters Office at 951-486-7200.
The Murrieta City Clerk's Office can be reached at 951-461-6305 with questions about Thursday's local voter registration outreach.
Murrieta voters will be asked to cast ballot choices for city council, school board, and red-light cameras, the president of the United States, and statewide public offices and initiatives.
