In the United States of America, no one is required by law to vote in any local, state, or presidential election. Voting is a right and a privilege given to the American people, according to the United States Constitution.
Election days are no longer a one day event. Instead of planning the whole day around voting on November 3rd and possibly waiting in long lines, voting early is now an option. Americans have the choice to mail in their ballot, drop it off at a designated ballot drop box, or visit a voting center closest to them and vote in person.
Californians must be registered to vote at least 15 days before Election day.
As voter registration has currently passed, voting is still available through provisional ballots.
Other than needing confirmation of your voting eligibility through your County Elections Official, provisional ballots are no different than a regular ballot.
By visiting either your county’s elections office or a voting center, Californians have the 14 days prior to the election to register, or can wait till the last day. This is called Same Day Voter Registration.
While the big winners are always President and Vice President, local and state elections as well as propositions can affect people in an instant.
Every 4 years Americans are presented the opportunity to vote and create change.
Going through election pamphlets as well as reading on different propositions allows the voter to inform themselves on the whole aspect of the ballot.
