The League of Women Voters will be on campus 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Tue., Oct. 18 to help register students to vote, on the 1st floor.
Voter registration needs to be completed 15 days prior to the election. There are also California Voter Registration Forms in the library by the Reference Desk.
The California Community Colleges and the Secretary of State team up to increase civic participation and voter registration by students from all segments of higher education.
The Secretary of State’s office created a webpage which hosts resources for campuses, faculty and students for frequently asked questions related to voting, sample posters, sample social media posts for voter registration efforts, key deadlines and dates, and a guide to facilitate voter registration drives.

*The California Students Vote Project is a public-private effort led by the California Secretary of State’s office in partnership with the California Lieutenant Governor’s office, and three nonprofit organizations; CalPIRG, California Common Cause, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Asian Law Caucus. These groups recognize that a healthy democracy must include the voices of California’s next generation. The California Students Vote Project is advocating for the implementation of student voter registration best practices at all of California’s public colleges and universities. The California Students Vote Project has the potential to dramatically increase voter engagement in upcoming elections.
The California Community Colleges is the largest system of higher education in the nation composed of 72 districts and 113 colleges serving 2.1 million students per year.
