LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The March 3 primaries are just weeks away, and today the Los Angeles City Clerk's Office reminded people that the deadline to register to vote is Tuesday.
To be eligible to vote, a person must be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years old by Election Day and not in prison or on parole for a felony.
Registered voters who have moved or changed their names since the last election or would like to change their political party affiliation must re- register to vote.
People can register to vote at registertovote.ca.gov or in person at the Office of the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC), 12400 Imperial Highway in Norwalk.
People can also pick up a voter registration form at most Los Angeles city and county buildings, libraries, fire stations, post offices and Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) offices. They can be returned by mail with no postage necessary.
Eligible Los Angeles County residents who miss the registration deadline can still vote at any Vote Center in Los Angeles County. Under California election law, conditional voter registration allows a prospective voter to conditionally register and cast a ballot.
The General Municipal Election will be held Nov. 3. The city conducted the candidate-filing portion of the elections and the County of Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder will administer the elections. More information can be found at lavote.net or by calling 800-815-2666.
