More than 17,000 voter registration forms were collected by the office during the Close of Registration period on Monday, Oct. 18.

Monday was the last day for eligible citizens not registered to vote in California to register in order to vote in the upcoming Nov. 2 General Election.

On Monday, more than a dozen voter registration sites were set up to assist voters all day, up until midnight. Sites included local DMV offices, City Halls and community organizations.

The 16-hour voter registration drive was a collaboration between the Registrar -Recorder/County Clerk, local Department of Motor Vehicle offices, City Clerks in Glendale, Pomona, West Hollywood, and the community organizations AltaMed, El Centro del Pueblo, the League of Women Voters, NALEO Educational Fund and Voto Latino.

"Every election is important for our community, county and state, and every vote counts," said Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan. "The efforts of our office and partners are helping to ensure that every eligible citizen in the county had easy access to the process."

During the period from September to Oct. 18, the RR/CC received more than 150,000 voter registration forms in anticipation of the Nov. 2 General Election.

"We are encouraged by the level of participation on the part of eligible citizens and are working diligently to process these voter registration forms so that voters can have a voice this election," said Logan.

The department would like to remind voters who registered on Oct. 18 that they can access a copy of their official sample ballot and locate their polling place online at Late registrants should also remember that if their name does not appear on the roster of voters that they have a right to cast a provisional ballot.
