LAHSA is committed to providing information and resources to assist homeless services providers and Los Angeles County residents experiencing homelessness to vote in this and future elections.
As the November 3, 2020 general election approaches, please check out the following information to help yourself or your clients become registered to vote.
CAN I VOTE EVEN WHILE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS?
YES, registering to vote in California does not require you to be a tenant or homeowner.
Normal voter eligibility rules still apply
Important points regarding voter registration for people experiencing homelessness:
If you do not have a primary place of residence, you can list cross streets for Box #4 on your registration form.
To receive a vote by mail ballot, you must indicate a mailing address in Box #5 on the form. This can be a DPSS office, DMH office, a provider's office, etc., that agrees to hold your mail.
If you are unable to provide a mailing address and cannot receive a vote by mail ballot, you can still register and vote on the same day in person at a polling place either on election day, November 3, 2020, or during early voting.
If you do not have a California-issued ID card, you can list the last four digits of your Social Security Number to register.
If you do not have or are unaware of your Social Security Number, you can still register to vote. However, your registration will take longer to verify. If this situation applies to you, please register as soon as possible.
