Reminder to Vote June 5, 2012

To: UCSC Community

From: Donna Blitzer, Director of Government Relations

This is to remind you that California will hold a primary election on Tuesday, June 5.  In addition to the important vote for party Presidential candidates, there are elected positions being contested, as well as several state and local initiatives on the ballot. 

Voting is a citizen’s fundamental right, and I urge you to use this opportunity to let your voice be heard. 

California state law, University of California policy, and applicable labor agreements allow leave with pay up to a maximum of two hours for voting in a statewide primary or general election if an employee is scheduled to work eight hours or more that day, and if the employee does not have time to vote outside of working hours.

For information on where to vote and your sample ballot, please go to this County of Santa Cruz web site:
