Help me decide: vote at school or my home in California?

 

Reasons to vote by mail with your permanent address

  • I know a lot about local politics at home, voting by mail in my home county will require me to do less research about the candidates on my ballot.
  • It's only one more step to mail my ballot. California makes it pretty easy to vote by mail.
  • Statewide candidates (governor, etc) and ballot propositions are the same either place.

Reasons to vote with your local USD address (by mail or in person)

  • I will be able to learn about and discuss local San Diego issues with friends from school and be part of my new community.
  • I can vote in person and get a cool sticker when I'm done.
  • I don't know that much about local issues and candidates at my permanent address so I'm going to have to learn it all anyway.
  • There are plenty of ways to get up to speed on local candidates and issues, including registering for and attending Politifest on October 6.
