Last Chance to Register to Vote in the June 5 Primary

The deadline to register to vote in the state's primary election, held June 5, is May 21, and the deadline to submit a request to vote by mail is May 29.

With all the campaign commercials, stump speeches and kissing of babies, it might be difficult to actually remember to register to vote in California's upcoming June 5 primary election.

That's why Danville Patch is here to remind you that the deadline for voters looking to cast their ballots in the election season's first round is Monday, May 21.

Voter registration forms can be obtained at the City Clerk’s Office, the Contra Costa County Election Division, online through the California Secretary of State or by calling the City Clerk’s Office (925) 314-3401) to have a form mailed to you. Only registered voters can request a vote by mail ballot.

For those that wish to vote by mail, the deadline to submit a request for a vote by mail ballot is Tuesday, May 29 at 5 p.m.

  • A citizen of the United States, and
  • At least 18 years old at the time of the election, and
  • Not in prison or parole for the conviction of a felony, and
  • Not deemed mentally incompetent by a court.
