Voter Registration FAQ

Who is eligible to vote?

US citizens who reside in California, will be 18 or older on election day, who are not currently serving a state or federal prison term for a felony, and who have not been determined to be mentally incompetent to vote by a court.

I’m not 18 yet. Can I register to vote?

Yes! If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can pre-register anytime and will be able to vote so long as you turn 18 by election day.

How do I change my party preference?

You need to re-register to vote to change your party preference.

Who should I vote for?

CAIR California is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is, therefore, unable to endorse any specific candidates.

Do I need to re-register for each election?

No, once you're registered, you do not need to re-register for each election unless you change your name, address, or political party affiliation.
