In an effort to promote voter registration, and to educate voters on the eSlate voting system, the Elections Office has been actively involved in community outreach.
democracyLIVE!, the San Mateo County student poll worker program, is currently in the midst of June 3 Statewide Direct Primary sign-ups. In addition to the Wild 94.9 radio interview we told you about on April 21, our democracyLIVE! Coordinator attended the Pacific Islander Conference at College of San Mateo on May 2 to promote this program.
The 8th Asian Pacific American Heritage Celebration at San Mateo’s Central Park on May 10 featured special performances, arts and crafts, food, demonstrations, raffle prizes, and a number of various vendors and exhibitors as they came together for this free celebration. There, the Elections Office hosted trilingual demonstrations of the eSlate voting equipment.
On May 18, the Elections Office will be hosting a voter registration and democracyLIVE! information booth at the Burlingame “1st Annual Day on the Green” music festival.
The “Day on the Green” festival will be held at the Burlingame High School football stadium from 11:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. and is sponsored by Live 105 and the Burlingame Youth Advisory Committee. There’s a $10 admission cost, but proceeds from the event will benefit VH1’s Save the Music Foundation, the Burlingame Youth Scholarship Program, and the Burlingame Youth Advisory Committee.
