A Student Guide to Voting in Davis


The June 7th Presidential Primary and local Davis General Municipal and Special Elections are less than a month away! If this is your first time voting away from home, here are a few tips to help the process go smoothly:

  1. Know where you are registered to vote.
    Election notices may not do you much good in the hands of Mom and Dad. If you’ve established your residency in a Davis apartment, make sure you are registered at your current address. The last day to register to vote is May 23rd for the June 7th Election.
  2. You can register quickly online via the California Secretary of State website here. It takes just a minute and is an important first step to complete prior to May 23rd registration deadline. You can even do it right now via your smartphone!
  3. Get to know your politicians and local ballot measures. If you are registered in Davis, don’t miss your chance to impact the local community by getting to know local measures appearing on your ballot next month.
  4. Know your assigned polling station. Your polling station will be set 2-4 weeks prior to the election. Tandem offers the use of some of our community rooms for this purpose every year. Your assigned polling station will come in the mail printed on your voter guide. You can also search for your polling station on the California Secretary of State website. 
  5. Vote on June 7th. Join the community on June 7th to exercise your right to vote. Every vote matters! We hope to see you on Election Day 2016!
