Body of News Release

San Rafael, CA – The Marin County Elections Department is eagerly anticipating the return of the Youth Town Hall on Sunday, April 28, from 2-4 PM in the Marin County Board of Supervisors chamber at the Civic Center (3501 Civic Center Drive, Suite 330) in San Rafael.

It is the second year for this exceptional opportunity for Marin County high school and college students to interface with political leaders from their own towns and cities. The event is free and includes refreshments and prizes.

This year’s lineup of panelists includes mayors, vice mayors, and council members from all 11 municipalities in Marin: Belvedere, Corte Madera, Fairfax, Larkspur, Mill Valley, Novato, Ross, San Anselmo, San Rafael, Sausalito, and Tiburon.

The Youth Town Hall will consist of a discussion followed by a Q&A session. Attendees will meet other civic-minded individuals and have an opportunity to interact and connect. Those planning to attend are requested to make a reservation in either English or Spanish.

The Youth Town Hall was conceived, organized, and produced by the students of Marin County’s Student Elections Ambassador Program (SEAP). Founded in 2018, SEAP is a voter outreach program for high school and college students sponsored by the Marin County Elections Department, the League of Women Voters of Marin County (LWVMC), and the Marin County Office of Education (MCOE).

Because youth voter turnout in Marin still lags behind other age groups, SEAP student ambassadors learn about the importance of youth voter participation and the registration process and are supported in developing their own ways to reach out to their peers. Roughly 150 student ambassadors have preregistered and registered more than 1,400 new and future voters in Marin in the past five years. SEAP welcomes new applicants.
