Monday, May 12th, 2014 at 3:24 pm in 2014 primary, voter registration.

If you’re not yet registered to vote in the June 3 primary election, you only have one more week in which to get signed up.

The deadline is next Monday, May 19, Secretary of State Debra Bowen reminds Californians. “With the deadline to register to vote almost here, now is the time to get it done and check it off your ‘to-do’ list,” she said. “Registering to vote is now easier than ever for eligible Californians, so there is no need to wait.”

Eligible Californians can register online at or get a paper application at local libraries, U.S. post offices, California Department of Motor Vehicles offices, and many more places. Voter registration closes 15 days prior to any California election.

A person must re-register to vote after moving or changing names, or to change his or her political party preference. Voters can check their registration status by contacting their county registars’ offices; a list of websites and phone numbers is available at

Remember: If you don’t register and vote, you get whatever everyone else thinks you deserve and you have no right to complain.

    Spread the word. This post couldn’t be more dead on.

    It’s our fault if we don’t vote and get stuck with criminal politicians like Mary Hayashi and Leland Yee.

    Stand up for democracy and register to vote before the May 19th deadline.
