On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, at 11 a.m., the Santa Monica City Clerk and LA County Clerk will host a National Voter Registration Day event at City Hall and introduce LA County’s new voting system. That evening, the LA County Clerk will give a presentation to City Council on the future of voting.
Every year, citizens find themselves unable to vote because of a missed registration deadline, outdated registration information, or because they are unsure how to register. National Voter Registration Day seeks to help eligible voters across the country exercise their most basic right – the right to vote. Santa Monica community members can register at City Hall, all Santa Monica branch libraries, and online at smvote.org (registration status check available). The community is also invited to watch a demonstration of the County’s new voting system and a presentation to the City Council on the new voter experience. More information on the County’s Voting Assessment Project can be found atvsap.lavote.net. Information on National Voter Registration Day can be found at nationalvoterregistrationday.org and through social media by following #NationalVoterRegistrationDay.
