Outreach Events

We spend a lot of time out in the community helping people register to vote and educating the public about voting. That’s because we want everyone who is eligible to register, and everyone who is registered to vote. We visit high schools and colleges, make presentations to local organizations, host voter registration tables at community events, and more.  

The Supervisor of Elections Office is strictly a non-partisan entity – we do not discuss politics, ideologies, candidates or ballot issues. 

Invite us to host a voter registration/education table at your next event.
Request someone from our office to come speak to your group.
