Californians Must Register By Tuesday To Vote In Feb. 5 Primaries

Californians have until Tuesday to register to vote in the state's Feb. 5 presidential primary election.

In a bid to get more voters to the polls, Secretary of State Debra Bowen is planning an all-day drive Tuesday to attract last-minute voters.

A report released by Bowen's office last month found that slightly more than 15.4 million Californians have registered to vote in the primary election. That number reflects 67 percent of the state's eligible voters.

State law requires Californians to register to vote 15 days before an election, but the voters have an extra day this year because the deadline falls on the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
