Excerpted from Secretary of State Alex Padella :

“California’s 16- and 17-year-olds can now pre-register to vote online at registertovote.ca.gov,” said Secretary Padilla. “Online pre-registration will help more young people vote as soon as they are eligible. Whether they’re at school or at home or hanging out with friends, young Californians can pre-register to vote in just minutes in their smartphone, tablet or laptop.”

Generation Z is the generation after the millennials, born between 1998 and 2016. Progressive Gen Zers turning 18 before November 6th can give all-of-us a gift this year by voting!

Most Gen Zers, however, don’t know that they have to pre-register to be eligible to vote on election day because voter education is often overlooked by many high schools.

That’s why we must advocate to our school boards, who represent all-of-us. Don’t forget that school board members make up the largest body of elected officials in the US. Whether or not we have children, we have entrusted these board members to set the strategic vision and policies for our schools. We must make sure that civic education is a core part of that vision. This week, all-of-us must school our schools to ensure that Gen Zers don’t hit snooze on November 6th.

California:16- and 17-year-olds may preregister to vote in any election that occurs on or after their 18th birthday.

If you are a parent of a child in high school, contact your school’s administration and confirm that they will have a voter education event that includes voter pre-registration.

Call your local school board (you don’t have to be a parent to do this) and confirm that schools in your district are prioritizing voter education and especially voter pre-registration. Click here to find your Oakland school board.
