Orange County Elections Invites Applications for Upcoming Election Academy

In 2010 the Registrar of Voters launched the Orange County Election Academy, an academic program designed to teach participants about elections in Orange County, California. This award winning, one-of-a-kind elections education program, is open to the public at no cost. The comprehensive curriculum is particularly beneficial to those individuals interested in voting, running for office, and the elections process in general.

The Registrar of Voters is currently accepting applications for the 2018 session, which is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. The program will be conducted at the Registrar of Voters, 1300 South Grand Avenue, Santa Ana. The curriculum will encompass all election management functions including candidate filing, campaign finance, ballot creation, election security, communications and more.

The Election Academy is designed to leave a lasting impact on those who participate in the unique hands-on program. "This is an excellent opportunity for members of the community to learn about elections," said Neal Kelley, Orange County Registrar of Voters. "Our past Academy sessions have been well received and we are excited to present the program to a new class."
