registration drives are being held at several East County locations listed
below.   You must be registered by October 20th to vote
in the November 4th presidential election.

Registering in person means you don’t have to worry about forms
getting lost in the mail or arriving too late.   If you’re
not yet registered, you can sign up at any of these upcoming events:   

Thursday, Sept. 11:  Santee Trolley Square, Santee, 5-7 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 13:   Grossmont Center, La Mesa, 12-6 p.m.

Or go the Registrar of Voters, which will be open until midnight
on October 20.

(see contact info at the bottom of this article.)

You can also register by mail, but allow plenty of time.
You fill out a postcard (available at your Post Office, library,  Department
of Motor Vehicles or Registrar of Voters), mail it in, then wait to receive
a form you must sign and return – all before the  October 20th
deadline.   You can also order an online
voter registration form
(must be mailed back to you for signature).

Check to see if you’re registered to vote:

Even if you’ve registered before,  the Registrar of Voters
cleans its list and regularly drops off people who have moved or not voted
.  Even people who haven’t moved and voted are
occasionally dropped in error, so it’s best to check this site and
make sure your registration is current—and reregister if you’ve
been dropped: 

You can register to vote in California, if you are:

•A U.S. Citizen

•A California Resident

•At least 18 years of age on or before the next election

•Not in prison or on parole for a felony conviction

•Not declared mentally incompetent by court action
