Election Connection: Local Elections Coming Soon – Registered?

It’s often said that people who don’t vote, lose their voice when it comes to who they want in public offices and what they want their representatives to do when they get into those offices. Before going to the election polls and voting, you have to be registered. Save time and frustrustion: If you have moved – update your records with your local election’s office before election day.

Here is a list of some important election deadlines, specifically within Orange County.
