In preparation for the elections in November CAPS Media will be producing a series of programs and forums. The events will feature the voices and positions of the candidates for City Council, Ventura Unified School District and the Ventura Community College District Trustee candidates through our long running Video Voter program. CAPS will offer candidates the chance to share their campaign platforms with the community. The comprehensive voter information program is an important part of our mission to create an informed and educated community through electronic media. Go the Schedules tab on the CAPSMedia.org website for dates and times of all our election programs.
Don’t forget the dates of Vote By Mail are October 8-October 30. There are Ballot drop boxes at County Government Center, City Clerk offices during their regular business hours, Clerk-Recorder East County Office at the Civic Arts Plaza, or any polling place on Election Day. Ventura County has texting program where citizens can register or confirm voter registration by texting “Ventura County” to 2VOTE (28683).
“Voting is one of the most sacred privileges we have as Americans. To be able to cast our vote in a peaceful and safe environment makes us the envy of the world.” Mark Lunn, Clerk-Recorder, County of Ventura
