Who Can Register to Vote?

Safe at Home Participants

Please do not use this form to register or re-register to vote if you are enrolled in a confidential address program such as Safe at Home. If sharing your address could put you in life-threatening danger, you may be eligible to register to vote confidentially.

For more information, contact the Safe at Home program at 877-322-5227 or visit the Secretary of State's Safe at Home website.

The California Secretary of State has created a web-based tool, Restore Your Vote, to provide eligible citizens who are on probation and parole with the most up-to-date information about their voting rights.
