The Imperial County Registrar of Voters recently completed its transition to integrating its voter registration database with the Secretary of State’s Office to allow for near instantaneous validation of and updates to a resident’s voter registration file, as well as meet the requirements of the Help America Vote Act of 2002.

As of Feb. 1, county officials have been able to update its voter registration files in near “real time” as a result of the state now implementing a single, uniform, centralized voter registration database, said county Registrar of Voters Debbie Porter.
