California Online Voter Registration (COVR) system

Nationally, California ranks 45th out of 50 states in the percentage of eligible voters who are actually registered to vote. There are 8.5 million Californians who are eligible to vote, but have not taken the step of registering to vote.

COVR is one tool that can contribute to increasing the state’s low voter registration rate while helping election officials maintain quality voter rolls.

California’s online voter registration system now has some incredible new features:
You can register online using a tablet or a smart phone.

The application is shorter and easier – you can register in just a few minutes.
It is now available in 10 languages: English, Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Tagalog/Filipino, Thai, and Vietnamese.

It is easier to use with a screen reader and more accessible for people with a disability.
You can submit an online registration form without a driver’s license or state identification card and your county will then follow-up with you to complete the final step of registration – providing your signature.
