The last day to register to vote in order to receive a mailed ballot for next month’s recall election is Monday, according to the Humboldt County Elections Office.

The Sept. 14 vote will determine whether Gov. Gavin Newsom, who took office in 2019, keeps his job. Voters are being asked two questions on the ballot. First, should Newsom remain as governor and two, if removed, who should replace him. (Read more about the recall process here.)

California residents who are already registered to vote should have received a ballot in the mail. Those not yet registered but who do so by Monday will be mailed a ballot.

Residents can register online at RegistertoVote.ca.gov or via a registration form available at post offices and the Office of Elections, with the later needing to be postmarked no later than Aug. 31 in order to be mailed a ballot.

“After the 31st, you will still be able to register at the Humboldt County Office of Elections and receive your ballot there,” a news release from the office states. “Starting Sept. 11, you will also be able to go to your Voter Assistance Center and register and vote a Conditional Ballot.”
