Voter Registration Deadline: October 19 is the traditional voter registration deadline for the November 3, 2020, General Election.  If an eligible Californian misses the October 19 deadline, they can complete the Same Day Voter Registration process and cast their vote that day. However, this option is only available at County elections offices and in-person voting locations.
