Important points regarding voter registration for people experiencing homelessness

Addresses

  • 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.

Identification

  • 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.

Although the October 19, 2020 deadline to register to vote and get a vote by mail ballot has passed, you can still register to vote and vote on the same day in-person at a vote center starting at some on October 24, 2020.

However, your vote will become conditional upon verification of your registration, so it is important you do this as soon as possible.
