The Santa Barbara Public Library System will participate in National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday September 25, a non-partisan voter registration drive. Volunteers will be available to assist voters with the registration process in an effort to ensure every eligible voter has an opportunity to register and vote in the 2016 election.
Anyone who needs to register to vote or update their name or address on their voter registration may do so at the following locations and times in the Santa Ynez Valley:
Buellton Library, 140 West Highway 246, Buellton, CA, 11 am – 7 pm
Solvang Library, 1745 Mission Drive, Solvang, CA, 10 am – 5 pm
Individuals may also register to vote online at any time: http://registertovote.ca.gov/
National Voter Registration Day is celebrated on the fourth Tuesday of every September by thousands of volunteers, celebrities, organizations, businesses and elected officials from all over the country. This single day of coordinated grassroots, digital and media efforts is aimed at creating a pervasive awareness of voter registration opportunities – reaching hundreds of thousands of new voters who would not register otherwise.
