Same Day Voter Registration, known as Conditional Voter Registration in state law, is a safety net for eligible Los Angeles County residents who miss the October 24th deadline to register to vote or update their voter registration information for an election.

How this works:

  • Any eligible voter can go to any Vote Center in the County during the 11-day voting period. 
  • Once at the Vote Center, the eligible voter will complete the CVR application.
  • The voter is then issued a CVR ballot to take to the new fully accessible Ballot Marking Device.
  • The voter's experience reading and marking their ballot will be the same; however, after the voter prints their paper ballot, they will be instructed to return their paper ballot to an Election Worker.
  • As soon as the CVR application is verified, their ballot will be counted, and the registration will become active. 
  • The voter may then vote in any future election in which they are eligible to participate.
