In celebration of High School Voter Education Weeks, the Fresno County Elections department is happy to participate in activities surrounding these important weeks with the following:

  • 2nd Annual Youth Government Forum – sponsored by the Republican Women’s Group, and held in the early spring approximately 50 students from Fresno County participate in an presentation given by Brandi Orth, County Clerk/Registrar of Voters on why it is important to vote and also hold a mock election.
  • Voter Pre-Registration of 16 and 17 year olds – eligible students can pre-register to vote by completing a voter registration card and mailing it to the Fresno County Elections office or by registering online at the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.ca.gov/elections/voter-registration. Individuals completing a pre-registration card automatically become registered to vote on their 18th birthday.
  • High School Poll Worker Program – open to juniors and seniors can earn $150.00 working on Election Day. Student poll workers help staff at the polling places throughout Fresno County.
  • County Clerk Brandi Orth stated “encouraging the youth in Fresno County in an environment that encourages civic duties such as holding a voter registration drive, voting in a student body election, and casting a ballot in future elections is exciting.”
