About the Student Program

Published on: 4/26/2013 5:39 PM
Since 2006, more than 6,000 Students from 93 High Schools have participated in the Santa Clara County Student Election Officer Program.  None of this would be possible without the Principals, Administrators, Teachers and Parents who place their trust in the promise of the Student Program and go above and beyond to to bring this opportunity to their students and children.  Thank You!

Here are a few of the many comments we’ve received about the Student Program:

“This field trip is a great opportunity for all students.  The experience teaches them about the election process and the importance of voting.”  Principal

“They learned so much more from their participation than merely reading and discussing the process in class.  I am sure this will result in them remaining active citizens in a democratic society.” Teacher

“The Student Program gets students involved and out in the community.” Teacher

“Being an Election Officer was an amazing experience.  I felt more involved and the experience urged me to become a better informed citizen.”  Student 2 Elections 

“This experience helped me to decide on a career in public service.  There is so much to do and I am looking forward to getting started.”  Student 3 Elections

“I had a lot of fun and it was a great experience.”  Student 1 Election

“We had 3 students who were all hard working, bright, competent, sociable, friendly and funny.  They made the experience a delight!”  Precinct Inspector, 6 Elections

“The students are a great support to our Elections, and they receive valuable life experience as a part of the team.  I hope the Student Program continues on all Elections in the future.”  Precinct Inspector, 10 Elections
