Conditional Voter Registration

Did you forget to register? No problem! Did you know that during the period of 14 days prior to Election Day through and including Election Day, you can go to the office of your county elections official or a vote center to conditionally register to vote and vote? This process is called Conditional Voter Registration (CVR). Here's how it works:

  1. Visit your county elections office or a vote center (a full list of county contact information can be found here:
  2. Complete a voter registration card or register online at
  3. Vote your CVR provisional ballot at your county elections office or vote center

Once the county elections official processes the affidavit of registration, determines that you’re eligible to register, and validates your information, the registration becomes permanent and your CVR provisional ballot will be counted.
