From President Drake: Your vote is your voice

Share This Article


Election Day is less than three weeks away.

At the University of California, we are doing everything we can to encourage all members of the UC community – including our dedicated UC staff – to get informed and vote. From climate change to housing to health care, issues that will affect our communities for years to come are on the ballot this year. Your voice matters.

If you need more information about voting, or are looking for resources to share with your friends and colleagues, the university’s UC Votes website is a great resource. You can also visit the California Secretary of State’s website, or reach out to your county elections office, for factual, nonpartisan, up-to-date information about this election and the voting process.

Voting is a privilege that we should never take for granted. Thank you for participating, sharing critical information and resources with your communities, and helping even more Californians make their voices heard.

Fiat Lux!

Michael V. Drake, M.D.
President, University of California
