Dear Members of the Santa Clara University Community,
The upcoming presidential election is a very significant one for our futures, for our country, and the world. Voting is perhaps the most important responsibility of being an engaged citizen. If you have not already registered to vote, I encourage you to do so as soon as possible.
Deadlines for registering to vote are fast approaching. The California deadline is October 22, 2012. If you are a permanent resident of another state you may choose to register to vote in that state. The website below provides state-by-state registration deadlines and convenient links for registering to vote on-line and for requesting absentee ballots -- http://www.longdistancevoter.org/voter_registration_deadlines?gclid=CK2KnbSn-pUCFQsQagod4l7cFQ#.UEDp0UK_N8E
Thank you for your part in being an engaged citizen.
Michael E. Engh, S.J.
