Importance of the November 2020 Election
As a result of the challenging and chaotic times we are living in, the 2020 General Election will be a critical one, and arguably the most important election of our lifetimes. We will have a chance to make our voices heard on key issues, policies, and elected officials, including the presidential race. In order for student voices to be heard in this crucial election, we must all work together to engage our students to not only register to vote, but also turn out to the polls.
Register to Vote
Your registration must be postmarked or submitted electronically no later than October 19, 2020
How to Vote
All active registered voters in California will receive a ballot in the mail. If you need to vote in-person, polling places will be open for four days, Oct. 31 through Nov. 3. There will be fewer locations than in prior elections, so the location of your assigned poll has most likely changed.
Check Your Voter Status
Check your voter registration status anytime to make sure it is current, and you are eligible to vote in the next election. You should be registered to vote at least 15 days before an election. If you missed the registration deadline for an upcoming election, you can conditionally register and vote provisionally. Voting material mailings begin 29 days before the election. To make sure your voting materials are promptly delivered to you, please verify that you are registered correctly.
