Exercising your right to vote is a powerful way to have a say about how our local, state and federal governments operate. Voting for laws and candidates of your choice is your opportunity to make sure the government serves its citizens well.

Voters with certain disabilities may need additional resources to access their right to vote. Vote-by-Mail in California can be part of that access. For the 2022 Midterm Election, ballots are being mailed to all voters right now. Additional resources are also available.

This webinar will focus on:

--Why it’s Important to Vote
--Your Voting Rights
--How to Register to Vote
--How to Cast your Vote & Make Your Voice Heard
--Recent Changes to the Voting Process

Join us to learn more about your right to vote and the voting process. Then Let Us Go Vote!
