UCSF Mission Bay – Voter Registration Table @ Mission Bay Farmer's Market
Oct 3 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Midterm elections are fast approaching, and we can help elect pro-science, pro-immigrant, pro-worker candidates! Election Day is November 6th, and we will be voting for federal, state, and local candidates, along with important ballot measures.

If you’re eligible to vote in the US, and if you haven’t yet registered to vote, you can do so here (or in-person at the Farmer’s Market)! Any California registered voter may request to vote using a vote-by-mail ballot. You do not have to be “absent” or “out of town on election day” to vote by mail in California. You may apply for a vote-by-mail ballot just because you want to.

You don’t need to be eligible to vote in the US in order to volunteer! In fact, many international Postdocs and students help out with campaigns.

In Solidarity,

Juliane Winkler, Unit Chair
Akua Gyamerah, Head Steward
