Registering new voters is a key factor in preserving our democracy. Young people coming up need to register. New citizens need to register. People moving in and out of cities, towns and rural areas need to re-register.
California is a growing state by at least 330,000 people per year (1). California has also passed new laws to encourage registration of all voters and young voters, such as the motor-voter law which automatically pre-registers all 16 and 17 year-olds when they receive their driver’s licenses (2).
Voter registration is also key to expanding the base of people who will vote for our great candidates.
We are attending voter registration events for new citizens in Fresno, CA as well as using our time there to help canvass for candidate Andrew Janz who is running against Devin Nunes. We are driving down on a Monday, canvassing in the evening, and then registering voters on Tuesday morning. Please watch this great video of our most recent trip and then help us spread the word by sharing it on all social media. With 100 days out, we need to encourage as many people as possible to join us. Next event is August 21, 2018 at 9:30am - 1pm RSVP Here. If you like to join us Monday email us at [email protected]
As always, we have great local events. Please attend one near you soon. The time is now!
