First time voters who registered by mail, and didn’t include their driver’s license number, California ID number, or the last 4 digits of their Social Security number on their registration may be asked to provide ID at the polls.

Acceptable forms of ID include: a current and valid photo ID; or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.

Voters without ID will be able to cast a provisional ballot.

Can You Still Register To Vote? Under California’s Conditional Voter Registration law, eligible citizens who missed the registration deadline can still register and vote at the Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office until 5 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
