Santa Rosa, CA – December 20, 2019 – The California Secretary of State has begun an email
notification program to voters who submit a voter registrations and have provided
an email address. The notification is to confirm the voter’s activity and to
help protect their voter registration in the event their registration may have
been changed by accident or without their consent. Email alerts will be sent by
the California Secretary of State if a voter registers, or their registration
is changed, updated or cancelled.
alerts will offer a voter instructions on what to do if the information in the
alert is incorrect. If a voter wishes to receive these alerts, they will need
to provide their email address during the registration process. The email
notification program will be rolled out in phases over the next several months,
based on the source of the registration. Beginning immediately, voters will
receive notification if their voter registration status has been changed to
cancelled or if they register or update their information via the California
Online Voter Registration (COVR) at registertovote.ca.gov. Notifications based
on registrations completed by paper or through the DMV will begin in January.
