Secretary of State Padilla will discuss the importance of voter registration and the role young people can play in shaping the future through civic participation. There will also be a student-led voter registration drive.
Secretary Padilla recently announced that eligible 16- and 17-year-olds can pre-register to vote online. By pre-registering, California youth will have their voter registration become active automatically when they turn 18.
High School Voter Education Weeks (April 17-28) provide an opportunity for high schools and their students to partner with elections officials to promote civic education and participation on campus and foster an environment that promotes active citizenship and lifelong voters.
