Election offices and Poll Workers Website: http://bit.ly/O6dnaG Being a poll worker is a great way to serve your community, take an active role in democracy, and become part of the dedicated team working to make the election process easy and accessible to everyone. Plus, its a fun way to learn about our history. Poll workers who work at a polling place are volunteers who are provided a stipend of $135 (for Inspectors) and $100 (for Clerks) for the day. Each polling place has a Precinct Board comprised of one Inspector and two to four Clerks. To Be a Poll Worker, you must meet the following criteria: >> Be a registered voter in Sonoma County (unless you are applying through the Student Poll Worker Program) >> Be able to follow written and verbal instruction >> Be available to serve Election Day from approximately 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. ("split shifts" may be arranged; contact the Registrar of Voters Office for details. >> Be able to complete the tasks as described in the Inspector or Clerk job duties

SSU Voter Outreach Program SSU Website: http://bit.ly/O6eIhQ California Secretary of State: http://1.usa.gov/PQj7IE When you start school - especially when it involves a relocation - you have a lot on your mind. Registering to vote may be low on your list, but remains an important way to stay involved and informed. I probably would not consider this a program as much as a link on the Registrar's page about national voter registration. Their site has a link to the California Secretary of State website where you can view instructions on how to check to see if you're registered, to change address, and register to vote. The County of Sonoma has a great tool that allows you to enter your address and find out what elected officials represent you in Sacramento and Washington, which districts you reside in, (including school district, fire protection, transit areas, etc.) Handy information. http://bit.ly/PQjcw4

Register to vote when 17 A few years back a bill was introduced to the California State Assembly titled AB 30 - The Health facilities: Security Plans Bill. Among its other provisions, this bill would have provided a way for 17 year olds to pre-register to vote. Oddly, this bill died in February 2012 due to a scheduling rule in the State Constitution. Interesting reading, but not much help for teens wanting to get involved. Instead, consider using a site like Email Future (http://bit.ly/O6hMKK). This site allows you to create an email that will be sent to you any time in the future. Super simple, enter a reminder to register, email it to yourself to be delivered a week after your 18th birthday, and forget about it.

Well said, Doug. And thank you for posting all the voter information. If one is a woman, a senior, or gay, then to vote Republican would be contradictory to who you are. Vote to keep Barack in the White House.
