The partnership includes a number of voter education events coordinated by the California Student Vote Coalition, throughout college campuses in Los Angeles County.
“With well over 100,000 students, Los Angeles County is home to some of the largest colleges and universities in the nation,” said Dean Logan, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, “Students living on campus and away from home should be up-to-date on their options for registering and voting.”
The California Student Vote Coalition is a non-partisan effort led by the University of California Student Association and other local Student Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs).
“Young voters today are the democracy of tomorrow, and it is essential that college students feel politically empowered to have a voice in the electoral process.” said Logan.
In order to vote in the upcoming November 6 General Election, L.A. County residents must be registered by Monday, October 22 at midnight.
