Voter education and registration events
Submitted By City of Fremont
In preparation for the upcoming November general election, the Fremont Family Resource Center (FRC) will host two voter education events along with many opportunities to register to vote.
On Tuesday, September 27, National Voter Registration Day, the FRC will host their first educational event from 12 noon Ð 1 p.m. On this day, attendees will learn how to use touch-screen accessible voting machines, register to vote, update their voter information, and sign up to be paid poll workers if they choose. The event is open to all ages, and seniors and those with a disability are especially encouraged to attend.
The second voter event is on Tuesday, October 4 from 12 noon Ð 1 p.m. The League of Women Voters will present an overview of ballot items in easy-to-understand language along with the pros and cons of the propositions. In past years, attendees found this session especially helpful in understanding the issues.
Additionally, on both September 27 and October 4, from 10 a.m. Ð 3 p.m., tables will be set up in front of the FRC so that residents can register to vote in time for the November 8 election. Voter registration forms will be available in many languages, and multi-lingual staff and volunteers will be available to help people complete the form. Residents can also pick up voter registration forms from the FRC lobby Monday-Friday 8 a.m. Ð 5 p.m. Completed forms must be mailed to the Registrar of Voters with a postmark date of October 24.
The FRC is seeking volunteers to help staff the voter registration tables and will provide all information needed. To volunteer for one-hour shifts or longer, please call the FRC at (510) 574-2000.
Co-sponsors of these events include the FRC division of the City of Fremont Human Services Department, CRIL, Registrar of Voters and League of Women Voters with support by the Alameda County Public Health Department.
