Whether you’ve just returned from the Border Tour, or just completed a four-hour Voter Service workshop, finish the day by joining us at the Smart Voter dinner on Thursday night. If you are not attending either sessions, but will be arriving at San Diego Thursday evening, consider treating yourself to this very special pre-Convention event.
We are pleased to have Michael Vu, San Diego County Registrar of Voters, be our guest for the evening.
Mr. Vu has over 18 years of election experience. He was appointed in April 2007 as the San Diego County Assistant Registrar of Voters and promoted in December 2012 to Registrar of Voters. Michael is responsible for election administration of the third largest election jurisdiction in California and the eighth largest election jurisdiction in the country, with a registered voter population of over 1.56 million in San Diego County. Mr. Vu oversees all primary, general, special, and district elections for the County as well as elections for the surrounding municipalities.
Before his appointment in San Diego County, Mr. Vu worked for three-and-a-half years as Director of the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections in Ohio. During his tenure as Director, he worked to improve the elections process and was involved on both a local and national level to discuss the status of election administration. He has testified before the United States House Administration Committee and the United States Election Assistance Commission. He has also spoken with numerous international, national, and local media outlets, most notably the New York Times, CNN, TV Asahi, the Washington Post, and the BBC.
Prior to relocating to Ohio, he spent seven years working for the Salt Lake County Elections Division under the direction of the Salt Lake County Clerk. There he managed all related elections for the county, assisted in policy development, and oversaw efforts in utilizing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for election-related statistics and projects.
