What’s New!

VoteCal takes effect January 19, 2016 in Ventura County – two months ahead of schedule. VoteCal replaces the former voter registration database and provides a single, uniform, centralized voter registration database that meets applicable Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002 requirements. VoteCal will provide improved service to the voters of California by: (1) Connecting the Secretary of State and all 58 county elections offices together to improve the voter registration process; (2) Providing a publicly available website which will allow voters to register online; and (3) Providing a single, official statewide database of voter registration information.
