It’s September 1st and most schools are back in session. In addition to having your school supplies in order, please make sure you Register to Vote if you will turn 18 years of age by Election Day.
For college students attending school out of the area, you may either request a vote by mail ballot from the Orange County Registrar of Voters Office or you may register at the address where you will be attending school.
Remember that millennials are a critical – and very large – voting constituency who are often at the forefront of political activism. (It’s not an accident presidential debates are historically held on college campuses!) Most college campuses have programs and events, put on by campus or local political parties and campaigns that explain different candidates’ views on certain issues. For more information, you can also visit some great online resources aimed at younger voters, like Rock the Vote and Project Vote Smart. You can also check out the websites for political parties, which have information on issues, candidates, and initiatives.
Register to vote today and don’t miss this opportunity to have your voice heard!
Deadline to Register to Vote is October 24, 2016
Deadline to request Vote by Mail ballot is November 1, 2016
