Reaching New Voters



Secretary of State Debra Bowen invites you to help spread the word about the valuable tools and information available on the New Voters web page.

The sample articles and sample messages provided here, in each of the languages shown at the bottom of this page, are designed to help businesses, chambers of commerce, nonprofit organizations, health care clinics and agencies that serve the communities where these languages are spoken to inspire and prepare every eligible citizen to vote.

Consider adding an article or message about the New Voters web page to a newsletter, email or website. Or post one of the New Voters website buttons that appear on the right side of this page.

To help spread the word about the voting materials and assistance the Secretary of State offers in 10 languages, you may want to display or distribute a "Registered to vote?" poster/flyer.

Is your office waiting area set up to play DVDs or online videos? You can make the wait seem shorter while you spread the word about voting, by playing one or more voting-related public service announcements in English or Spanish. Topics include: who can vote, how to register to vote, what to expect when voting at a polling place and how to vote by mail. To view these voting-related messages, please visit the Secretary of State's Voter Information Public Service Announcements web page.

With your involvement, every eligible citizen in California will have ready access to the tools and information it takes to become an active, informed voter.

For further information, please contact the Secretary of State's Voter Education and Outreach Services Team by email or by phone at (916) 651-3070.
