Voter Registration

Voter Registration Requirements and Forms

You may register to vote in Los Angeles County if you meet all of the following requirements:
  1. You are a citizen of the United States;
  2. You are at least 18 years of age (or will be by the date of the next election);
  3. You are not in prison or on parole for a conviction of a felony;
  4. You have not been judged by a court to be mentally incompetent.

Voter Registration

It is recommended you file a new form each time you move and you must file one if you have never registered. You must be registered at least 15 days prior to an election in which you intend to vote. If you do not reside in Los Angeles County you must contact the County in which you reside to vote.

If you have any further questions about your voter registration status, please call the L.A. County Registrar of Voters at 562-462-2748.

Volunteers Needed

The City Clerk’s Department uses a large number of registered voters each Election Day to act as Polling Place Inspectors and Clerks. The pay is small, but the need is great. If you would like to volunteer, please call the City Clerk Department at 323-584-6230.
