A big push earlier this week resulted in big results. On Monday, which was the last day to register to vote before the November 2nd election, some 17,000 people came out to fill out and turn in forms at more than a dozen registration drives through L.A. County. Before that, over 150,000 voter registration forms were received by the Recorder-Registrar/County Clerk's office. "Every election is important for our community, County, and State and every Vote Counts," said Dean Logan Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. "The efforts of our office and partners are helping to ensure that every eligible citizen in the County had easy access to the process."

For those who registered late, there is a chance that their name will not appear on the roster of voters when they go to vote. In that case, they can fill out a provisional ballot. To check if your registration went through, use this link.
