Last but not least, I wanted to share voting information that was sent earlier from the Santa Clara County Office of Education.  You can see the full message below.


Due to the pandemic, you may have concerns regarding the November 3rd election. Registering to vote and casting your vote may appear a bit overwhelming. However, during this upcoming election it is actually easier to do both. If you have not yet registered to vote or would like to verify the status of your registration, please visit the California Voter Registration website, at: Please note the deadline to register to vote is Oct 19, 2020, 15 days before Election Day on Nov 3, 2020.  Anyone who is registered to vote will receive a ballot mailed to them automatically. Completed ballots can be returned in the free postage-paid envelope that is provided or can be placed in one of 98 conveniently located drop-boxes throughout the county. 

The Registrar of Voters Office will also be open for early voting beginning on October 5, 2020 through Election Day - access the office online, at: Voters who prefer to vote in person can still do so at any of the more than 100 Vote Centers that will be open throughout Santa Clara County starting October 31, 2020. 

Adhering to COVID-19 protocols, the Vote Centers will offer sanitary, in-person options for a full spectrum of services including language and accessibility assistance. For more information visit or call 866-430-VOTE (8683).  A few dates to keep in mind: 


Have an amazing weekend everyone,


Larry Lopez
