November 3, 2020 - Vision in Action No. 8

This is a special edition of the Vision in Action. On this Election Day, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office wants to ensure everyone is informed about the voting process and what happens after ballots are cast. This election is critically important to supporting our 116 colleges and the 2.1 million students we serve. And it’s already an historic election: more than 100 million Americans have already cast their ballots, with high or record voter turnout also expected today. Thank you for exercising your right to vote.
