Register to vote!

This year’s California General Election is less than a month away and carries with it far-reaching implications for the future of our state and nation. With that in mind, I would like to remind you that this is the last full week that you can register to vote before the registration deadline, next Monday, Oct. 18th. If you are not registered, wish to change your party affiliation, or have moved since the last election, I urge you to register or re-register to vote.

There are many ways to get hold of a voter registration form. Here are two online:

Many counties, including Alameda and Santa Clara, allow you to check your registration status online. The Secretary of State’s website provides a list of lookup sites and numbers by county.

I’m a fan of permanently voting by mail (a.k.a absentee), but you can also find your polling place using Smart Voter.
