Voter Registration on Covered California
Posted: January 11, 2016
There are actually 4 Different Options, Not 3… Yes, Yes, No or No Answer
When you apply for a Covered California health insurance plan with the California State Exchange, at the end of the application, you are given the option to register to vote. Of course, you have to be a US citizen and you have to be at least 18 years old. So, this gives you the option to kill two birds with one stone…get health insurance and register to vote all at the same time.
Most people select No and just move on. They came for medical coverage and the voter registration seems like just a distraction from what they intended to do.
However, if you need to register to vote, just click one of the yes answers. The first YES takes you to a web page where you can register online to vote. The second yes will cause you to get a voter registration card by mail. Or, you can click NO.
Or… You may not realize this but you can just NOT answer the question. This is not a required field on the application. Feeling non-committal? Well, this option is for you! However, be aware! Rumor has it that if you leave this field blank, you will receive a voter registration card by mail.
