Political Director’s Report – March 2022
Your Vote Counts
Before we head to the voting booths this June, I need to take this opportunity to remind everyone who is eligible to please register to vote. There are races that have been determined by one or two votes. Know that your vote matters and can swing an election, especially if we vote as a bloc. Please remember the words of Thomas Jefferson: “We do not have government by the majority. We have government by the majority who participate.”
The most convenient way to register is by visiting www.registertovote.ca.gov. You can also pick up a voter registration card at your local post office if you’re old school. In addition, we will have registration cards available at the halls.
The primary election this June will include the Governor and all other constitutional officers. Below you will our endorsements for the statewide races. We will include a full list of endorsements in the next newsletter.
Governor – Gavin Newsom
Lieutenant Governor – Eleni Kounalakis
Secretary of State – Shirley Weber
