LOS ANGELES—The Los Angeles City Clerk’s Office is reminding residents to register to vote by Tuesday, February 21, to be able to vote in the Primary Nominating Election.

To be eligible to vote, an individual must be 18 years old by Election Day, be a U.S. citizen, and not be incarcerated or on parole for a crime.

Voting registration is managed by the California Secretary of State.

Individuals can register to vote through the following ways:

  • Online: You can register online at www.registertovote.ca.gov.
  • In-person: You can register at the Office of the Los Angeles County Registar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC), located at 12400 Imperial Highway, Norwalk, CA 90650.
  • Voter registration forms can also be accessed at the public counter of many Los Angeles City and County buildings, post offices, libraries, fire stations, and Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices.

A voter can register and vote under conditional voter registration, 14 days before Election Day, through and including Election Day. This process is known as Conditional Voter Registration (CVR). To conditionally register, a person must complete a Voter Registration Card. They will then be issued a CVR provisional ballot. For additional information on CVR, visit www.sos.gov/election/voter-registration/conditional-vote-reg
