(Redwood City, CA) The deadline to register to vote is April 17, 2023 for the May 2, 2023 Millbrae School District Special Mail Ballot Election. Voter registration forms sent by mail must be postmarked on or before April 17, 2023.
Register online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. Online registration must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on April 17 to receive a ballot in the mail for the May 2, 2023 Millbrae School District Special Mail Ballot Election.
Voter Registration Forms are available at the following locations:
- Registration & Elections Division (40 Tower Road, San Mateo);
- Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder’s Office (555 County Center, Redwood City);

To be eligible to register to vote, a person must be:
- A U.S. citizen and a resident of California;
- At least 18 years old by Election Day;
- Not currently serving a state or federal prison term for the conviction of a felony; and
- Not currently deemed by a court to be mentally incompetent to vote.
If you are 16 or 17 years old, you can pre-register to vote. Persons who are pre-registered will automatically become a registered voter on their eighteenth birthday.
Ballots have been mailed to anyone in the Millbrae School District who pre-registered if their 18th birthday is no later than May 2, 2023. If your eighteenth birthday falls on or before May 2, and you did not pre-register by April 17, you will need to go to the Registration & Elections Division office for same-day registration and voting. All voters can confirm their current registration status online at smcacre.org by clicking on the “My Election Info” button.
Conditional Voter Registration (CVR)
Voters who miss the April 17, 2023 voter registration deadline may “conditionally” register to vote and receive their ballot immediately at the Registration & Elections Division office. When a conditional ballot is cast, the Registration & Elections Division processes the registration, determines the individual’s eligibility and validates the individual’s information. If the voter was indeed eligible to vote in the Millbrae School District, the registration becomes permanent, and the conditional ballot will be counted.
Voting Rights for Persons on Parole
In 2020, California voters passed a constitutional amendment to restore voting rights to people on parole for felony convictions. Whether or not the person was previously registered to vote, a new voter registration application must be completed once the person finishes serving their term.
Voting Period Began on April 3 and Ends on May 2
Millbrae School District’s registered voters were mailed ballots in early April. In-person voting started April 3 at the Registration & Elections Division.
