Studies have shown that same-day and election day registration (SDR) increases voter turnout, although it is difficult to determine the exact extent of the impact. Immediately after the implementation of the SDRs, states often see an increase in voter turnout. SDR states also tend to outperform other states in terms of participation percentages. Historically, many states that have implemented the SDR have produced a larger number of voters, making it difficult to measure changes.
Several studies place the effect between an increase of 3% and 7%, with an average increase of 5%. Finally, studies do not reveal conclusive evidence that SDRs influence partisan outcomes or that certain populations are more likely to benefit. Official county election offices, satellite locations, and all county voting centers are available for voter registration. An election official may offer a non-provisional ballot to a registrant if he first verifies that the registrant is eligible, has not voted, and has not been listed for that election in another county in the state. The election official must then update the voter record to indicate that the voter has already voted.
If these conditions do not apply, the voter receives a provisional ballot. Verifications are carried out through the state voter registration database (VoteCal), either through an electronic voting book or by connecting to VoteCal in the office. If the CVR occurs on election day, wherever they are held, the election official will wait until all the ballots are recorded before proceeding to count a provisional CVR ballot. An election official has until the close of the vote to count or reject a provisional CVR ballot. Early voting period until Election Day and Election Day (not offered for primary elections) are available for voter registration at designated locations in each city (not at voting centers in electoral districts).

The applicant must appear in person at the venue and must declare under oath that they have not voted before in the elections. Registrars review the centralized voter registration system across the state. The applicant will also sign the ballot envelope confirming that they are eligible to vote in the election.
