Outreach, Voter Language Workshop, and Volunteer


    Language Workshops

    The Registrar of Voters will be hosting a variety of language workshops (Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Korean, Khmer, Japanese, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, and Nepali) to assist all members of the community in familiarizing themselves with the upcoming November 7, 2023 Special Election. All English and bilingual members of the public are welcome to attend these workshops which will mainly focus on the following:

    • Voter's Choice Act
    • Vote by Mail Information
    • Vote Center Information (Date and Hours)

    The workshops will also cover different ways for people to get involved in the election process. Each workshop will have the appropriate bilingual speakers available either for the entire presentation or to provide interpretation services. Email us for more information at [email protected].

    Thank you to everyone who joined the ROV at the 13 Language Workshops for the November 2022 General Election. We had a record number of attendees for these meetings. If you missed the Workshops, recordings of the meetings can be found here

    Our role is to provide the public with voter registration opportunities and information about voting in Santa Clara County and promote our vote by mail and in person voting programs. We also share election updates, educate the public about civic resources, and solicit input and/or participation in election administration and voter outreach plans under the Voter’s Choice Act.

    For 2023 our Outreach goal is to increase community involvement beyond traditional in-person events and online presentations. We are developing new civic minded programs to share knowledge with our current and future voters, local educators, community leaders and organizations, and all who are interested in advocating the democratic process and inspired to engage their communities to vote every time there is an election.

    We have developed a local Voters Rights Act to foster civic engagement and voter participation in Santa Clara County. To learn more about the program and current outreach topics, click on Local Voters Rights Act.

    Check out Events Calendar to find out where our Outreach Team is in the community. If you wish to partner with us or have space for us at your fair or festival, please contact us at [email protected].

    High School Outreach

    One of the Outreach Teams goals is to encourage more of the counties youth to get involved in the political Processes. 

    The Outreach team will visit any High School, in the county, who requests a table or presentation.  We encourage those who are eligible to register to vote as well as encourage all students to find ways to start getting involved in the community, from volunteering with the county to finding causes they support and getting involved with them.  


    Pre Register To Vote

    Students aged 16 and 17 can pre-register to vote. When they turn 18 they will be automatically registered to vote. 


    High School Opportunities with the ROV

    High School students aged 16+ can volunteer with our office at various outreach events throughout the County, or at a vote center during election cycles. When students volunteer with us, they can earn community service hours! If a student volunteers at a vote center, as a student election officer, he/she has the choice of earning community service hours or receiving a stipend payment.

    • Students who would like to serve as election officers at a vote center location, please click here for more information.
    • Students who would like to volunteer at outreach events, at our office, or for other opportunities not including serving at a vote center, please fill out the form here.
