OC Votes

Let’s Mobilize OC: Let’s Get Out the Vote in 2024!

Orange County is gearing up for the 2024 election. 

It is an important Election year for the country, both locally and nationally. As part of our commitment to strengthening our communities, we are reigniting the OC Votes, Get Out the Vote Campaign for the duration of the year.

With primary elections in March and the Federal elections in November, it promises to be a big year.

We will be providing a steady stream of easily accessible GOTV information about the right to vote (what does it mean and how do we protect it?), how to vote, and where to vote in Orange County – the critical basics!

We encourage you to use information that is useful to mobilize the communities you serve and work with, and even to encourage your own staff to exercise their voting rights as well!

We will also be uplifting the voices of our regional civic engagement partners, c4s who are doing important integrated voter engagement, and we want to spread the word about their great work as well!

Whether you are a c3 nonprofit, a c4 nonprofit, or a community initiative just getting out the vote – we can all do our part to support democracy.

If you have something you would like to share, lift up, or discuss about the election, please contact us.

Am I eligible to vote?

You are eligible to vote if you:

  • Are a United States citizen
  • Are a resident of California
  • Are at least 18 years old or older on Election Day
  • Are not currently in state or federal prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony

If part of the re-entry population, your right to vote is restored as soon as you are off parole, but you must re-register by paper or online here.

You do not need your photo ID to vote in California. Learn more. If you feel you are being harassed, or someone is telling you that you cannot vote, call (866) OUR-VOTE (687-8683).

How do I register?

The Orange County Registrar of Voters is a key resource for registration as well as election information. You can check to see whether you are registered and confirm the accuracy of your address for receiving your ballot online. Want to see if you’re registered? Visit here. The California Secretary of State is also a resource. You can register via other third party organizations such as vote.org, Can I Vote, Rock the Vote, and more.

There are relatively few instances where people are ineligible to vote. However, if you are wondering about your eligibility, please see here. Even if ineligible, you can make your voice more powerful by encouraging your friends and family to vote.

How can I vote?

You can vote in person or vote-by-mail ballot that you can mail or drop off at a number of locations.

Vote-by-mail ballots that are mailed must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by your county elections office no later than 7 days after Election Day.

If you are not sure your vote-by-mail ballot will arrive in time if mailed, bring it to any polling place in the state between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.

The Orange County Registrar will be providing the latest info on Vote Centers and more here.
