Registration applications submitted online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov before to midnight Monday will be honored, according to registrar staff. Paper application forms postmarked by the deadline will also be honored. Paper applications are available at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office, Department of Motor Vehicles offices, post offices and public libraries.

The registrar's office, 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside, will be open until 5 p.m. Monday to accept registration forms.

"Because the forms contain personal information, and to help ensure they are received on time, the Registrar of Voters encourages voters to personally deliver or mail completed forms to the registrar’s office, while keeping the deadline in mind," registrar staff said.

"California residents may register to vote if they are U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old by Election Day, not adjudicated as mentally incompetent and not precluded because of certain criminal convictions. A person must re-register to vote after moving, changing names or changing political party preference."
