Not registered to vote?

If you have not registered to vote, today is the last chance to register on line for the June 3rd election, Shape the Future.  How easy is that! 

Last chance to register is today
for the June 3rd ballot
Hey, I'm still on the ballot, vote for Yee
"Registering to vote is the first step every citizen takes to become an eligible voter. Once registered, you can begin to strengthen our democracy by participating in elections, working at our polling precincts, and even registering others like yourself to become voters."

....   "You may register at any time, but to be eligible to vote in an upcoming election, your Voter Registration Form must be applied on-line by midnight no later than 15 days before that election. If you are mailing a Voter Registration Form, it must be postmarked no later than 15 days before that election and received by the San Mateo County Registration & Elections Division by the close of the polls on election day. 

Voter Qualifications.  You may register to vote if you meet all of the following requirements: Citizen of the United States, resident of California, at least 18 years of age on or before election day, not in prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony.

Re-register to Vote. You must re-register to vote if you:  change your name, change your address, want to change your political affiliation (party)."
