2018 California Voter Bill of Rights

September 15, 2019

Hello California voters! Did you know you have the following rights? You have the right to vote if you are a registered voter. You’re eligible to vote if you are a US citizen living in California, registered where you currently live, at least 18 years old, not currently in state or federal prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony , and not currently found mentally incompetent to vote by a court. You have the right to vote if you are a registered voter even if your name is not on the list. You will vote using a provisional ballot. Your vote will be counted if elections
officials determine that you are eligible to vote. You have the right to vote if you are still in line when the polls close, and the right to cast a secret ballot without anyone bothering you or telling you how to vote. If you’ve not already cast your ballot, you can get a new ballot if you have made a mistake. Ask an elections official at a polling place for a new ballot or exchange your vote by mail ballot for a new one at an elections office or at your polling
place or vote using a provisional ballot. You have the right to get help casting
your ballot from anyone you choose except from your employer or union
representative. If you vote by mail, you can drop off your completed vote by mail ballot at any polling place in California. You have the right to get
election materials in a language other than English if enough people in your
voting precincts speak that language. And the right to ask questions to elections officials about election procedures and watch the election process. You have the right to report any illegal or fraudulent election activity to an elections official or the Secretary of State’s office. If you believe you’ve been denied any of these rights, call the Secretary of State’s confidential
