On Monday I was sworn in as California Secretary of State -- and I'm ready to get to work.
First -- I want to ask for your help.
As I campaigned across the state last year, I said that increasing voter registration and turnout, protecting voting rights, and making it easier to start a business would be three of my top priorities as Secretary of State.
Let's start with the first issue -- getting more voters engaged in our democracy. California had a record low turnout in the November 2014 election. While I shared some ideas to increase turnout during the election, I know I don't have all the answers.
That's why I'm asking for your help. Here's my question:
If you could do one thing to boost voting in California, what would you do?
The best ideas often come from citizens who are passionate about making a difference and moving us forward.
Will you take a moment to watch my video and share your idea for boosting the vote in California? I'll report back on some of the best ideas I receive and continue the discussion online.
Thanks again for all you do. I look forward to our continued work together.
Secretary of State for California
