Homeless Doesn't Mean Voteless

If you are homeless & you don’t like the way you are being treated,

You have the power to change who makes the decisions

 

If you are homeless you can still vote!

You can have a say in voting out the people who don’t care about you,

and voting for the people who do care about you.

 

To Vote in the June 7th Primary Election you must register to vote by May 23rd

You can get a Registration Application Form or register online at: http://registertovote.ca.gov/

June 7, 2016 Primary Election, your registration must be postmarked or submitted electronically no later than May 23, 2016

 

To register online

You will need

Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature. If you do not have a California driver license or California identification card, you can still use this form to apply to register to vote by completing the online interview.

Where it asks for your home address, click the circle that says “I do not have a street address” and then complete the the cross street where you most recently spend your time

 

To register with a paper application

Paper voter registration applications are available at your county elections office, library, Department of Motor Vehicles offices, or U.S. post office.

It is important that your voter registration application be filled out completely and be postmarked or hand-delivered to your county elections office at least 15 days before the election.

Directions on how to complete your application if you are homeless.

If you do not have an address, do this on your voter registration form:

 

1.      Line #5 – Leave blank

2.      Line #6 – Leave blank

3.       Line #7 – write in the names of the nearest cross streets where you usually hang out. This doesn’t have to be exact. We know that there are sweeps going on that are forcing you to change where you sleep. Just write in the nearest cross street where you usually hang out. The Registrar of Voters will use this location to determine where you must go to vote and which candidates you can vote for. For example, you need to be living in the city of San Diego if you want to vote for the mayor of San Diego.

4.      Line # 8 – You must put a mailing address where the Registrar of Voters can send your notice of the Precinct where you can go to vote. This address can be a PO Box or someplace where someone has agreed to accept your mail where you can go pick it up. For example, you can use Neil Good Day Center, 299 17th St. San Diego, CA 92101.

5.      If you use Neil Good Day Center, for your mailing address, remember that it is moving sometime after July, so you will need to re-register for the November election with the new address. The Neil Good address will work for the Primary Election on June 7, 2016. Maybe you will have a place to live by then!

a.      If you want to use Neil Good as a mailing address, you need to go there and sign up to get your mail. You will need to show them some form of ID and get a card. You cannot pick up mail at Neil Good Day Center without a card.

b.      Remember to go to Neil Good Day Center to check your mail for your sample ballot, so you know where to go to vote on June 7th.

6.      Line #15 - Choose a political party preference. You must choose a party to be able to vote for a presidential candidate in a particular Party in the Primary Election on June 7th. You can vote for other offices, such as Mayor or City Council, no matter what party you select. If you check NO, I do not want to disclose a political party… you cannot vote in some parties’ primaries, but in California, you CAN vote in the Democratic primary, but if you choose to vote by mail, you will need to request a Democratic voter ballot.

7.      If you want to vote by mail, you should register to vote before May 9th when the Vote-by-Mail ballots are mailed to registered voters.

a.      Remember to check your mail to get your Vote-by-Mail ballot.

b.      Return your ballot early enough for it to get to the ROV by Election Day -June 7th - best to mail by June 1st.

c.      Remember to follow the instructions carefully and to sign the envelope.

 

You can have a say in how you are treated – Register & Vote!
