September 22nd (the 4th Tuesday) is Voter Registration Day
Are you eligible to vote? Are you registered to vote? Do you need to register to vote? You can get answers to most of your question on the Sacramento County Registrar’s website.
Check here to see whether you are currently registered in California. If you want or need to change any information in your voter registration record, e.g., moved to a new address, changed your name, want to change party preference, you must reregister. If you want to register or reregister to vote, and you're eligible to vote, you can register online. It's easy! Want to see how? Check out our YouTube channel for "How to Register!"
If you need help registering, the League of Women Voters can help. Please contact us by phone at (916) 447-8683 or by voterservices [at] lwvsacramento.org (email).

- PROP 22 Rideshare and Delivery Drivers -----------LWVC takes NO POSITION
- PROP 23 Kidney Dialysis Clinics -----------LWVC is NEUTRAL
- PROP 24 Consumer Data Privacy -----------LWVC vote NO
Among the troubling aspects of Prop 24 is its expansion of “pay for privacy” through the addition of loyalty and rewards programs, allowing businesses to charge consumers more or provide worse service if they choose to exercise their privacy rights. It also weakens the current legal requirement that companies respect a global opt-out for all services.
- PROP 25 End Cash Money Bail ————————————LWVC vote YES
A "yes"vote on Prop 25 is a vote to replace the money bail system with the use of pretrial risk assessment tools that focus on safety and flight risk.

STRONG MAYOR PROPOSAL RISES AGAIN....
The League of Women Voters of Sacramento County submitted a letter by email to the Sacramento City Council expressing our opposition to the Strong-Mayor ballot proposal. Similar proposals have already been rejected several times by the voters. While the League does support a salaried mayor postion and a vote for the Mayor on Council issues, we do not support the Mayor having more voting power than other Council member since he or she already has the "bully pulpit." Our opposition to the Strong-Mayor form of city governance is based on a study the League completed in 2009. You can send an email to your councilmember expressing your position. AND, join the League to stay on top of the current issues.
