Monday is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 6 presidential election, and Los Angeles County registrar workers will be staffing registration tables at more than a dozen locations to encourage people to sign up.
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's "Outreach Team'' plans to "hit the streets to get the message out that it's the last chance to register to vote in this presidential election,'' according to Dean Logan, county registrar/clerk. "With the launch of online voter registration, there is no excuse not to register to vote.''
According to the county clerk's office, about 3 million eligible county residents are not registered to vote.
Anyone who is not registered, has recently moved or changed his or her name needs to register. People who are unsure if they are registered can check at www.lavote.net.
Online registration is also available until midnight. To register online, you will need a California driver license or identification card number, the last four digits of your social security number and your date of birth.
County officials will set up registration tables at 18 locations Monday afternoon/evening to make it easier for people to register. At the East Los Angeles Civic Center location, the county will provide screens for people to view the final debate between President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
Folks in Altadena can head to a Drive-Thru Registration Drive hosted by the Pasadena Area Democratic Headquarters at 519 South Lake Avenue in Pasadena from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Republicans can also register at the event.
You can also check out these other registration locations, most of which will open at 5 p.m. and remain open until 11 p.m. or midnight. The top three in bold are closest to Altadena.
