Civic Engagement – High School Voter Education Weeks

In 2014, Assembly Bill 1817 was signed by Governor Brown designating the last two full weeks in April and September to be High School Voter Education Weeks. This legislation provides an opportunity for high schools and their students to partner with county elections officials to promote civic education and participation on campus and foster an environment that cultivates lifelong voters and active citizens. Secretary Padilla is excited to be a part of this initiative to engage high school students and prepare them to become active participants in our nation’s democracy. To help recognize the importance of the upcoming weeks, Secretary Padilla has issued a resolution encouraging all California High Schools to participate in California’s High School Voter Education Weeks, which will be held April 13-25, 2015. Feel free to use this resolution as a tool to gain support and recognition from your Board of Supervisors or County Board of Education. If you have questions about this, or any other outreach related matter please feel free to contact me at (916) 657-2305. Thank you.
