You can make a difference! Voting in California begins in 10 days

Join your campus CFA chapter to elect candidates who support public higher education!

The official 2018 General Election Day is November 6, but the voting in California really begins just 10 days from now, on October 8, when vote-by-mail ballots start to arrive at voters’ homes.

Since a majority of California voters now use mail ballots, we effectively have an election season, not just a day.

That means the work CFA members are doing right now is critical — registering voters, convincing people to vote, and garnering support for pro-public higher education candidates.

Make a difference. Click here to volunteer.


  • If you vote by mail, watch for your ballot beginning October 8.
  • If you want to vote by mail you still can, but your request must be to the Secretary of State by October 30.
  • If you are not registered to vote at all, you must register by October 22 or you will miss this critical election.

Don’t miss it. Be there. Merge your power with the vast majority of Americans who support public higher education when you —Vote! Then, take the next step by volunteering to convince others to vote for public higher education.
