Drive-thru Voter Registration and Mid-Night Madness

Posted:

The last day to register to vote is Monday, October 20th and political parties and county officials are trying to make the process as easy as possible.

Political parties will set up registration booths throughout the county in an effort to help more people vote for what many are calling a "crucial presidential election."

The County Clerk says he's seen a record high number of voter registration with more than 360,000 new voters already in the system and more are expected on Monday.

Drive through registration sites will be set up on several corners; Ashlan and Cornelia, Clovis and Shaw, Dakota and First Street, Kings Canyon and Clovis, Willow and Shaw, Willow and Herndon, Friant Rd. and 41 off ramp, and finally Madera and Whitesbridge, in Kerman. You can visit one of these sites or call 559-297-0866 for more information.

The Fresno County Elections Office will also be open until midnight on Monday, as part of Midnight Madness. Their address is 2221 Kern Street in Downtown Fresno.

Election officials will be outside the office for people to drive up and register.  Officials say in the past, people have come in their pajamas and they expect the same for this historic national election.

For more information, please call Victor Salazar at 488-1730.
