The Student Affairs Division in conjunction with the UCSB Gauchos Vote Coalition (Associated Students EVPSA, CALPIRG, and the Voter Registration Volunteer Coalition) sponsors a non-partisan voter registration drive twice a year, in fall and winter or spring, depending on the state and local elections schedule.
Registering online is a very fast and easy process. By registering through the link below, you can increase the number of registered students at UCSB. California Student Vote also provides a list of resources and tools necessary to get you to feel comfortable while voting. Student Vote could be used as an alternative in case you are not living in California by the time you vote.
With the passage of California Senate Bill No. 854-Chapter 481, state-funded higher education institutions - community colleges, California State University system and University of California campuses - are required to allow students to request voter registration materials online through a link in their course registration system. As a result of this legislation, UCSB students are able to link to the online voter registration application from the UCSB Gaucho On-line Data (GOLD) system at the same time they are searching and registering for classes. The https://castudentvote.org/ link allows students to complete the voter registration process online as long as they possess a California driver license or identification card number. If you want to register out of state go to https://studentvote.org/
