Adult Educators Reach New Voters in 10 Languages
Posted on 09/29/2014
With the November 4 General Election just around the corner, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen is offering online voter registration and all the basic information people need to become voters, in their choice of English, Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Tagalog, Thai or Vietnamese, on the California Secretary of State's New Voters web page.
October 20 is the last day to register to vote in the November 4 election.
Adult schools and community colleges can help improve voter turnout by sharing these key dates and the New Voters web page with faculty and students in all subject areas. The Reaching New Voters section of the New Voters page provides tools in all 10 covered languages that make it easy to spread the word about voting in the following nonpartisan ways:
- Add a "MyVote" or "Register to Vote" button to your website.
- Post a website message about registering and voting.
- Display or distribute a " Registered to Vote?" poster/flyer.
The Secretary of State is inviting you to join in this endeavor to let everyone know how convenient it is to become a California voter. With your involvement, many more citizens will take part in our democracy this fall as voters.
