Deadline Approaching to Register to Vote on Nov. 6-
If you are registered to vote, you should have received your sample ballot booklet. If not, you may want to check your voter registration status online. If you have moved recently or missed several elections, you may have to re-register. You can renew your registration online, by mail (registration forms are widely available at most County buildings, post offices, libraries, Department of Motor Vehicle [DMV] offices), or in person at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters’ office in Oakland, 1225 Fallon Street, Rm. G-1, Oakland, CA 94612. The Registrar of Voter’s office is open 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
The voter registration deadline is always 15 days before an election. Voters who register after the 29th day before an election should receive notice of the location of their polling place in the mail, but they may not receive a sample ballot with information about candidates and measures due to the short turnaround time for mailing.
