High School Voter Registration and Pre-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.


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.
