REGISTER TO VOTE

Stunningly, in the 2014 General Election, only 52% of eligible youth were registered to vote—more than 20 points below any other age group—and only 8% of eligible youth aged 18-24 voted. However, during the 2018 General Election, youth voter registration in California increased to 61.6% and youth voter turnout increased significantly to 27.5%. Though there have been increases in voter registration and turnout among California youth, 18-24 year old's are still the lowest represented age group in the state.

As a result of the challenging and chaotic times we are living in, the 2020 General Election will be a critical one, and arguably the most important election of our lifetimes. Students will have a chance to make their voices heard on key issues, policies, and elected officials, including the presidential race.

The California Students Vote Project (CSVP) — a project by the California Secretary of State’s Office in partnership with each California higher education system and the Lieutenant Governor—has taken strides to improve student civic engagement. During the 2018 General Election, the CSVP launched the very first California University and College Ballot Bowl, a nine-week competition where almost 11,000 college students registered to vote ahead of the 2018 General Election.

This year, West Hills College Lemoore is participating in the Ballot Bowl competition. The Ballot Bowl competition is live and will conclude on Election Day, November 3rd, 2020.
