In the last presidential election, more than half of college students did not vote. An estimated 48 percent of students voted compared to more than 70 percent of senior citizens -- a serious imbalance that ultimately means less attention to the needs of students and their colleges. Had more students voted, they might have changed the outcomes in some of our key swing states.

- pick up a form in person at any number of public offices such as any Library, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), or Post Office.
- Visit the San Diego County Reigistrar of Voters webpage
- Call 1-800-345-VOTE to request a form be mailed to you
- Review the California Voter Registration website
- Register to vote online on the the California Online Voter Registration website. The form will be printed and mailed to you for your signature. After you verify that the information is correct, the form must be signed and mailed to your county election official for the registration to be processed.
You must re-register to vote when you have a change in address, change in name, or change your political party affiliation.
Anyone falsifying information on the Voter Registration Application Form can be fined or imprisoned, or deported or refused entry into the United States.
