Dear UCSF Community,

The California Gubernatorial Recall Election on September 14, 2021 is fast approaching. All registered California voters were mailed ballots in mid-August. If you did not receive your ballot, please check that your voter registration is accurate by August 30.

At UCSF, we are committed to encouraging civic participation throughout our campus and community. For more information about the upcoming election, please visit the California Secretary of State’s website. You can vote early and track your ballot here. Please check with your County’s Department of Elections for in-person voting options and COVID-19 prevention measures such as wearing a mask and social distancing.

As a reminder, UCSF legally must remain nonpartisan, and UCSF employees cannot support or oppose candidates within their University roles or with UCSF resources. However, you may participate in campaign activities on your own time, with your own resources, and without any inference of University endorsement. You can watch this short video for more information about UCSF advocacy guidelines and connect with my office with any questions.

You can make a difference in our democratic process by encouraging your friends, family, and colleagues to have a plan to exercise their right and responsibility to vote.
