The Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) was developed by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) in 2009 to take the place of an aging voting system. The project seeks a voting system that will put voters at the center and get more people out to vote.
You can now register to vote online by visiting the California Secretary of State's web site. You will need your California driver license or identification card number, the last four digits of your social security number, and your date of birth. Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature.
