California High School Voter Education WeekThe Board of Education of the San Bernardino City Unified School District declares September 16–27, 2019, as High School Voter Education Week and encourages District schools to participate in activities that help register and pre-register eligible students to vote, while encouraging others to become informed citizens committed to being active voters once they reach voting age.

The right to vote is a fundamental underpinning of democracy, one that must be personally cherished, practiced, and championed as a civic duty. Young people play a critical role in our democracy by helping to choose the people who will lead us and by voicing their opinions on the issues that are more important to them.

California has an online tool that allows eligible 16- and 17-year olds to pre-register to vote and then automatically become active voters once they turn 18, and by reaching out early and often to students, we can help them develop a strong and lasting appreciation for the value of voting.
