Glendale City Leaders to Host Secretary of State for High School Voter Education Week

Glendale, CA – On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla will visit Anderson W. Clark Magnet High School in Glendale to mark High School Voter Education Week. Glendale Mayor Ara Najarian and City Clerk Ardashes “Ardy” Kassakhian will welcome Padilla, who will speak to students about the importance of civic engagement at a voter outreach and education assembly in the school’s auditorium. The one-hour assembly begins at 9:55 a.m. at 4747 New York Ave., La Crescenta, CA 91214.

The California Education Code designates the last two weeks of April and September as High School Voter Education Weeks. Padilla’s visit is part of a voter outreach and education partnership organized by the Office of the Glendale City Clerk to mark California High School Voter Education Week. The partnership includes the Office of the Glendale City Clerk, Glendale Unified School District, the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office, and the California Secretary of State’s office.  

These weeks provide an opportunity for high schools across California to partner with County elections officials to promote non-partisan civic education and participation on campuses and foster an environment that cultivates lifelong voters and active citizens.

For more information regarding this event, please contact the Office of the Glendale City Clerk at (818) 548-4000. Follow the Office of the Glendale City Clerk @COGCityClerk for updates.
