With the 2018 Election just days away, we want to make sure that our community is not just REGISTERED to vote, but READY to vote. We’ve compiled a list of California voter resources and guides to help you Make a Plan to Vote on November 6th.
Make sure you’re registered!
Go to https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov/ to check your Voter Registration Status.
If you missed the October 22nd deadline to register to vote, you can “conditionally” register to vote and vote provisionally at your local county elections office.
If you have questions or concerns about your voter registration status, contact your local elections office. In Marin County, the Registrar of Voters information is below:

You don’t have to start from scratch. Our friends at Latino Community Foundation have created a Latino Voter Guide to help you understand the role and qualifications of the elected officials you’ll be voting for as well as the impact of the Ballot Measures you’ll see.
