Are You Registered to Vote?

Dear Student,

As recent elections have shown, every vote is important – and it’s important for college students to register and vote, too. De Anza College is complying with California's Student Civic and Voter Empowerment Act by providing the following information about how to exercise your rights.

Register Online To Vote   

Here are some dates to remember

If you are registered to vote in California, you should receive your ballot in the mail in the next two weeks, beginning Aug. 16. (You can check to see if you are registered on the Secretary of State's website.) You'll then have three ways to vote.

  • Mail in your ballot as soon as you fill it out — but no later than Election Day. (Postage is free.)
  • Drop off your ballot at an official ballot drop box. Find one near you by checking the county elections website or visit to see if there is one on campus.
  • Bring your ballot to any county Vote Center. Find one near you by checking the county elections website.

Voting procedures may vary in different counties, so you can check with your county election office to learn more.

You can also visit the California Secretary of State’s election information website at, the California Students Vote Project at and the De Anza Votes webpage at

Best wishes,
De Anza College
