500,000 Californians update info for state elections

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of thousands of Californians have gone online this week to ensure they’re eligible to vote in the November election.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced Tuesday that 500,000 people enrolled for the first time or updated their information in the final two days the state accepted registrations.

More than 203,000 people registered or updated information online on Sunday. Another 297,000 registered or updated information online on Monday, the last day to do so to participate in the Nov. 8 election.

Padilla’s office says more than 18.25 million people registered to vote by Sept. 9.

Spokesman Sam Mahood says the secretary of state expects to release an updated count next week.
