Register To Vote In California: Deadline Is Monday October 22, 2012


Monday is the deadline for voter registration in California, and if the debates have told us anything, this one's going to be a doozy.

On the bright side, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that San Francisco already has a record number of voters registered this year -- a whopping 489,000 residents, which tops 2008's number by 11,644. And thanks to a certain embattled sheriff, thousands of eligible inmates are also registered to vote.

But if you're not one of 489,000, today is the day, dear reader.

Not sure if you're registered? Check here to see your status, and visit the Secretary of State website to register by midnight tonight. You can also find your polling station here.

Don't want to find your polling station? You can apply to vote by mail anytime before October 30, here.

Come on, California, it couldn't be easier! Happy voting, everyone.
