On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, the Santa Barbara Public Library System will participate in National Voter Registration Day, a non-partisan voter registration drive. Volunteers will be available to assist individuals with the registration process in an effort to ensure every eligible voter has an opportunity to register and vote in the 2018 election.
National Voter Registration Day is a massive 50-state effort to register voters before Election Day this November. With midterms and governor races happening in a few weeks, every eligible American voter should exercise their right to be heard at the ballot box. National Voter Registration Day is the right place to start by getting registered.
The Santa Barbara Public Library System, in partnership with League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara, is proud to be a National Voter Registration Day partner. All who want to register to vote, pre-register to vote or update their name or address on their voter registration may do so at the following locations and times:
Individuals may also register to vote online at any time: http://registertovote.ca.gov/
Anyone who would like to volunteer for a shift helping the community register to vote can contact Jen Lemberger, Programming & Marketing Librarian at JLemberger@SantaBarbaraCA.gov or call 805-564-5621.
