Secretary Of State  Padilla To Visit Argonaut High

Secretary of State Alex Padilla will visit Argonaut High School later this month. The Secretary’s visit on Monday, April 24, is part of High School Voter Education Weeks. Secretary Padilla recently announced that eligible 16- and 17-year-olds could pre-register to vote online.  By pre-registering, California youth will have their voter registration become active automatically when they turn 18. Padilla will discuss the importance of voter registration and the role young people can play in shaping the future through civic participation. High School Voter Education Weeks (April 17-28) is designed to provide an opportunity for high schools and their students to partner with elections officials to promote civic education and participation on campus and foster an environment that cultivates lifelong voters and active citizens.
