High School Voter Registration

California State celebrated High School Voter Education during the last two weeks of April. To encourage and support local students and schools, Contra Costa County has created a free, mobile texting tool just for high school students. Using this program, Contra Costa County students 16 and up can preregister and those 18 and older can register to vote.

DIRECTIONS:
1-Text your school name to: 2Vote (28683)
2- Receive a reply text with a link to quick, easy voter registration tools.

Additional election-related resources specifically for younger voters (mock elections on youth-oriented topics, poll worker opportunities, HS voter registration drive ideas) can be found on the California Secretary of State website.
