The Sonoma County Registrar of Voters reminds residents that the regular deadline to register to vote in the upcoming Nov. 2, 2021, Consolidated Election is Oct. 18 at 11:59 p.m. This election only applies to voters who reside in one or more of the following jurisdictions:
- City of Sonoma
- Occidental Community Services District

To be eligible to register to vote, one must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old on or before Election Day, and not in prison for the conviction of a felony. Any voter who has recently moved or changed their name should re-register. Residents who miss the registration deadline will still have the option to conditionally register and vote in person. Please contact the Registrar of Voters Office for further details about this process.
Those who are eligible to vote can register online at registertovote.ca.gov. Postage-paid paper registration forms are also available at many public and government offices including city halls, post offices and the Registrar of Voters Office. Online registration forms must be submitted electronically by 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 18. Completed registration forms returned by mail must be postmarked on or before Oct. 18. Forms returned in person to the Registrar of Voters Office must be deposited into the office’s 24/7 drive-thru drop box by Oct. 18.
