Dear Cal Bears,
As the leading public university in the United States, UC Berkeley has
a rich tradition of student involvement and civic engagement. With

remains a right, not a privilege. You can do this by voting in the
upcoming election on November 6th, 2012. And, for the first time in
California’s history, you can register to vote online.
You can register to vote at: http://www.californiastudentvote.org.
The tool above was created through a partnership between the University
of California Student Association (UCSA), CALPIRG, and Rock the Vote.
The ASUC Vote Coalition is a non-partisan organization that acts as

to maintaining UC Berkeley’s reputation for world-class education. By
voting, you can ensure that governmental decisions reflect student
interests, as well as decide the outcome of the presidential race,
critical state ballot initiatives, and local council and mayoral races.
The deadline to register is October 22nd, 2012, two weeks before the
