Register to Vote
California offers voter registration online, by mail, and in person. Online voter registration is available at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. You can also request and complete a paper voter registration form and mail, or hand deliver it to the County of Riverside Registrar of Voters to register to vote. For more information on registering, visit California's voting resources website. Registering ahead of time is ideal, but if you miss the deadline, you can also register on voting day.
To register to vote, you must:
- be a United States citizen
- be a resident of California
- be at least 18 years old or older on Election Day
- not be currently in state or federal prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony
- not be currently found to be mentally incompetent to vote by a court
Vote Safely with Your Vote-By-Mail Ballot
All City of Riverside voters will receive a vote-by-mail ballot for the March 5, 2024, election. The Registrar of Voters office began mailing ballots on February 5, 2024.
Voting by Mail is Safe and Easy
After marking your choices on your ballot, simply:
Secure your ballot inside the envelope from your county elections office.
Make sure the signature on your ballot envelope matches the one on your CA driver license/state ID, or the one you provided when registering. Your county elections office will compare them to protect your vote.
By mail — Make sure your ballot is postmarked by March 5, 2024. No stamp required!
In person — Drop your ballot off at a secure drop box, polling place, Riverside City Hall, or county elections office by 8:00 p.m. on March 5, 2024.
