Dear colleagues,

On November 3, voters across the U.S. will have the opportunity to weigh in on candidates and issues that will affect their futures and the future of our country.

UCI is composed of engaged students, faculty and staff eager to get involved and make a difference. I trust that all of you will take part in the upcoming election and make your voice heard. Especially for students and others who may be newly eligible to vote or have a new address, please be sure to register. The deadline to register online for the November election is October 19. After that day, you may register in person.

Californians can vote before Election Day. The early voting period begins on Monday, October 5, through election day on Tuesday, November 3, but dates and hours may vary based on where you live. Early voting and vote-by-mail ballot drop off locations may be found on the Secretary of State’s Elections and Voter Information website or the Orange County Registrar of Voters website.

Voting is your voice and we encourage you to use it. Please take advantage of the hard-won right to participate in American democracy and use the most powerful tool you have to bring about lasting change. I encourage you to make sure you are registered to vote, research the candidates and issues and, most importantly, get out and vote on or before November 3.
