In California, voters can now register on the internet. Shown is an old-fashioned Florida Voter Registration Application.

If you want to vote in the November 6 Presidential election you have until midnight on Monday to register. Eligible voters must be citizens of the United States and 18 years old by November 6th. 

In California, the deadline to register is always two weeks before the election date, and this weekend the rush is on to register. For the first time in the run-up to a Presidential election, voters may go online to register

California Secretary of State Debra Bowen is responsible for managing the hundreds of thousands of applications submitted in the final weeks before the voter registration deadline.

Bowen says she wants as many people as possible to register before Monday, and points out that should internet registration be too difficult, that the trusty paper applications are widely available.
