National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday, September 28, 2021


Mark your calendar - we will need many volunteers to sign up to help us register new voters and update the registrations of existing voters at local libraries in Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Carpinteria.  

Stay tuned - we'll be posting sign-up information soon for you to volunteer for one of several  2-hour time slots at the libraries that day!
