2020 Election Information for Faculty & Staff

Vote Safe California

Voting is a fundamental right for all Americans and it’s important to educate yourself in order to make informed decisions. Some of our employees have been voting for years but for some this will be their first year to cast a ballot. Our goal is to provide non-partisan information that may help as you prepare to vote on November 3, 2020.
