VOTER REGISTRATION
Are you a registered Voter?  Do you need to re-register?  What does this even mean?
 
It means that you are a resident of your city and state.  You are 18 years or older. But most of all, you want to vote for individuals and/or measures that best represent your views in our democratic society.  

To make your vote count, you need to register to vote.  That is submit your name, address, and other information that the California Secretary of State requires.  When that department receives your information, it is shared with the County of San Mateo, who then shares it with the City of East Palo Alto during elections.  This information enables us to know that you are now registered to vote, can be appointed to any of the City's advisory bodies, and/or maybe one day run for office.

If you are a registered voter, but have recently moved then, you must re-register!

If you do not have time to vote on Election Day, you have the opportunity to vote by mail.  A ballot will be mailed to you prior to the election.  You then can mail it in or drop it off the day of the election.  But you cannot mail it the day after the election!
