What If My Name Isn't on the Official Polling Place List?
Voters who believe they've registered, but arrive at a polling place only to find they're not on the official voter registration list can cast a provisional ballot. The same is true for vote-by-mail voters who did not receive a ballot or forgot to bring it to the polling place. Provisional ballots go into a special envelope, and they're counted after it's confirmed that you're registered to vote.

What If I Changed My Name?
You'll need to re-register. Ideally, you'd first update your California driver's license or ID with the DMV.
Something Didn't Seem Right at the Polling Place
