Today is the last chance for Californians to register to vote online and still receive a ballot in the mail in time for the election.

Here's the website:

The midnight online deadline doesn't mean it's your last chance to register at all. There are in-person registration options through 8 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 3.

But the Oct. 19 online cutoff point is necessary to give county election officials time to verify voters' eligibility and still ship out their ballot.

Since the 2016 general election, California has added nearly three million new voters and the voter registration rate is at its highest level since 1952, the Secretary of State's office reported last week. More than 84% of eligible voters are registered -- or 21.2 million Californians.

Even so, millions more are eligible to vote who have not registered.
