Secretary of State Debra Bowen is encouraging all businesses, nonprofit organizations, community groups and every other Californian to promote voter registration with their own creative outreach events during a specially designated week. California Voter Registration Week includes National Voter Registration Day, which is September 24.
Go to www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voting-in-california for nonpartisan outreach tools. More information about National Voter Registration Day is at www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org.
“Voting gives eligible Californians the opportunity to help shape laws and choose their representatives in government,” said Secretary Bowen, California’s chief elections official. “Online or on paper, registering to vote takes just five minutes.”
Californians can fill out a voter registration application online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. The state application is also available on paper at many post offices, public libraries, California Department of Motor Vehicles offices, and other government offices.
Eligible Californians have until October 20 to register to vote for the November 4 election.
September 21 through September 27, 2014
