In the November 2012 and May 2013 elections, there were a significant number of newly elected members of Congress, the California legislature, and in the local government. On November 4, 2014 there will be more new members elected at the local, state and federal levels. UCLA needs advocates that have strong relationships with these newly elected members. If you have not already, join Bruin Caucus, our volunteer advocacy group. UCLA and the future of higher education (#highered) depends on participants like you.
With respect to the November 4, 2014 election, it is important that you are registered to vote and that you do vote. If you are not registered, you can register to vote online. The deadline to register in the November election is October 20, 2014. Make sure you are ready and encourage others to be also.
Additionally, on September 16, 2014, Government & Community Relations will be holding a candidate forum for the 3rd Supervisorial District of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The goal of the forum is to provide voters with more information on the candidates and the issues of the 3rd Supervisorial district. Save the date for this event, online registration will be available in the next few weeks.
I hope you are having a great summer and remember to register and vote on election day, November 4, 2014.
