The Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC) Board of Directors supported Proposition 18, a ballot measure heading to the November 2020 ballot that seeks to allow 17-year-olds to vote in primary and special elections if they will turn 18 by the subsequent general election. This means that these 17-year-olds could vote in any special election or primary election that occurs before the next general election. (Because current state law allows registered voters to run for elective office, this measure would result in 17-year-olds who turn 18 by the next general election to do so as well, if they meet all other existing eligibility requirements for elective office.
The SSCCC understands the importance of this ballot measure and is pleased to provide a series of tools and materials to inform and support your local advocacy or support of this important ballot measure.
