September 23rd is National Voter Registration Day, the single largest national event focused on registering voters for the upcoming November 4th election.
In San Francisco, community organizations will be holding registration events throughout the city to educate potential voters about their right to vote and helping them register to vote. In particular, events in Chinatown and on school campuses will encourage those who are traditionally under-represented in elections -- young voters, immigrant voters, and monolingual voters -- to register to vote. While Asian Americans make up 34.4% of the city’s residents, only 23% of Asian Americans are registered to vote in San Francisco. Currently, of Asian Americans eligible to vote in San Francisco, only 54% are registered to vote.
CPA will be conducting voter registration drives throughout the day at: City College of San Francisco - Chinatown Campus and Ocean Campus, Lowell High School, Galileo High School.
Eligible voters can register to vote online today! Online voter registration is available in multiple languages, including Chinese.
Voters have until October 20th to register to vote in California for the November 4th, 2014 elections. Voters who have moved or changed their name must re-register to vote.
Voters can register to vote online or at the CPA office during our office hours.
