Description

Santa Cruz Indivisible (SCI) presents a conversation with California Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Santa Cruz Registrar of Voters Gail Pellerin on Friday, August 31 at 7:00 PM at the Rio Theatre. This is the second event in SCI's California Leadership Series.

What does a Secretary of State do? How does the position affect our right to free and fair elections? How does it relate to our local election process?

More than ever before Secretaries of State play a pivotal role in fighting back against voter suppression and gerrymandering, and in fortifying our elections against attacks from foreign interference. Learn about Secretary Padilla's role in these actions and about California's new Voter's Choice Act that will reshape how, when, and where California voters register and cast their ballots over the next couple years.

The Registrar of Voters is on the front lines to ensure that elections held in Santa Cruz County are run with accuracy, integrity, and transparency. Learn about the County Registrar of Voters role to ensure that elections are accessible, candidates are informed, voters are registered, voting information is clear and concise, election data is protected, and votes are counted accurately.

"The Golden State is serving as a beacon in the fight to expand access to the ballot. Your voice is critical as we implement new reforms to empower our fellow citizens to participate in our elections." ~ Secretary of State Alex Padilla

Please bring your teenage children to this free event. We will have a voter registration table in the lobby where 16- and 17-year-old teens will be able to pre-register to vote! What a great way for them to begin their voting careers.

This event is being sponsored by Pat and Rowland Rebele.
