Sonoma County Registrar Of Voters Informs Voters They May Receive Voter Notification Alerts

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.

The 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.
