Residents can register to vote by mail, online at the Secretary of State's website at registertovote.ca.gov, or in person at the San Bernardino County Elections Office at 777 East Rialto Ave., San Bernardino.
Registration forms are available at most post offices, libraries, city clerks' offices, and Department of Motor Vehicles locations. A full list is available at www.sbcountyelections.com.
To register to vote, a person must:
- Be a citizen of the United States
- Be at least 18 years old on Election Day, Nov. 6, 2012
- Not be in prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony
Voters who have recently moved to San Bernardino County must re-register to vote, according to the registrar.
Voters who have moved within the county do not need to re-register. However, they should update their addresses with the San Bernardino County Elections Office by filling out an in-county change of address form at www.sbcountyelections.com, according to the registrar.
