This is the first year that Californians can register to vote online.  The web system verifies voters' identities and signatures through the California Department of Motor Vehicles.  If the DMV is unable to confirm a voter's identity electronically, he or she must print, fill out and mail a paper voter registration form to their county election office.

Interested voters can also pick up registration forms at public libraries, DMVs, U.S. Post Offices and other public areas.

The upcoming election will take place on Nov. 6.
