Great time at the Ventura County Fair!
Camarillo RWF proudly preregistered 2 groups of young men who visited our boot and were excited to get involved and vote Republicans when they turn 18. Preregister your 16 year old today and encourage student civic engagement efforts, in order to promote a democracy.
California youth who pre-register to vote will have their registration become active once they turn 18 years old.
Pre-registration does not change the voting age, which is 18. Instead, it allows eligible Californians ages 16 or 17 to complete the online voter registration form providing sufficient time and opportunity to get ready to vote.
"Stunningly, in the 2014 General Election, only 52% of eligible youth were registered to vote—more than 20 points below any other age group—and only 8% of eligible youth aged 18-24 voted. However, during the 2018 General Election, youth voter registration in California increased to 61.6% and youth voter turnout increased significantly to 27.5%. Though there have been increases in voter registration and turnout among California youth, 18-24 year old's are still the lowest represented age group in the state."
