Californians must register to vote by Monday, Oct. 22, if they want to participate in the Nov. 6 election and the easiest way to register is online.
More than 544,000 Californians have submitted a voter registration application using the month-old online system, according to Secretary of State Debra Bowen.
"Given all of the important issues on the November ballot, I am delighted so many Californians want to make their voices heard," Bowen said Wednesday in a press release. "Since registering to vote is easier than ever with the quick online option, there is no excuse for not being ready to vote on Election Day."
Hundreds of thousands of registration applications are submitted in the final weeks before a voter registration deadline, especially in presidential election years.
Voter registration applications must be submitted by midnight 15 days before the election. Postmarks count for paper applications. Online applications must be submitted – not started – by midnight on the Oct. 22 deadline (online registration records are time-stamped upon completion).
