If you aren’t registered to vote by Monday night, you’ll have no say on the gas tax, daylight savings time, the governorship, or Congress.
Monday is the deadline to register to vote in California, and here are just some of the ways the Nov 6. Election will affect you: it will determine whether you have to change your clocks twice a year and set your alarm earlier, how much you pay at the gas pump, and whether or not your city can enact rent control. It’s also going to determine which party controls the U.S. House of Representatives. California voters will have a major say in the matter because this year, the Golden State holds the key to the House.
You can register to vote here before the Monday deadline at 11:59:59 p.m. — it only takes a minute. If you aren’t sure if you’re registered at your current address, you can check the status of your voter registration here.
