BAKERSFIELD, Calif (KGET) – Your last chance for unconditional voter registration is tonight at midnight. But if you miss the deadline, don’t worry. There are ways to register late and still have your ballot counted. You’ll have to rely on same-day or conditional voter registration. It’s for Californians registering to vote any day between October 20th and November 3rd.

“It is conditional because we want to make sure a person hasn’t double voted or there’s no address discrepancies,” said poll worker Sharon Francisco.

Conditional registration and voting changes a few things. First off- you have to do it in person. There are nine locations throughout the county where you can conditionally between tomorrow and election day. They have specific days and times when you can stop by.

When you go to these locations, you’ll be asked to fill out a voter registration form, and then they will hand you a ballot. Your ballot will be counted normally – but it will be one of the last ones counted.

“Once we get all the regular votes counted we can go process those papers, and as long as there’s no problems, their vote will definitely be counted,” Francisco said.

You can also conditionally register on election day at your local polling location. If you want to register to vote normally, you can register between now and midnight by clicking this link.

Here are all the locations where you can register to vote conditionally, between October 20 and November 3. You can find more information at this website. :
