Voter Registration Deadline Monday for Statewide Election

Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the June 3 statewide election.

To register, a person must be a U.S. citizen and a Los Angeles County resident, at least 18 years old by Election Day and not in prison or on parole for conviction of a felony.

Voters must re-register when they move or change political parties.

The Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters will be open until midnight Monday to receive applications.

The June 3 ballot includes candidates for Congress, state Senate, state Assembly, Los Angeles County district attorney, county supervisor and Superior Court judges. Voters will also weigh two statewide initiatives, Propositions 98 and 99.

A vote-by-mail application is printed on the back of the sample ballot. An online application is also available on the county registrar’s home page, along with polling place look-up, sample ballots and other election information.
