If you or someone you know is on the fence about voting in primaries:

1. You shape the direction of your political party when you vote in a primary and help steer your party towards your priorities.

2. In some races, the primary result is the final result. This happens in districts that lean strongly towards one party. Sometimes all candidates running for an office are members of the majority party in the district, and the primary winner has no opponent in November.

3. You help create energy and excitement for the final election.

, , , and have on Tuesday, May 17th.

There's still time to get to know who will be on your ballot before casting your vote to help you to be a confident voter tomorrow.

Please show up if you're registered and haven't yet voted. :vote:

Local elections are happening across the country today, November 2nd.

Mayors, city council members, governors,
local DA's, school boards, ballot issues and more are on the ballot. Chances are good that you have an election to vote in.

Do you know who's on your ballot? Have you voted? Check now and make a plan to vote before your area's polls close.

A reminder: there are going to be lots of school board elections today and elections for several governors.

Remember how unhinged conservatives are coaching swathes of anti-maskers on how to disrupt and become elected to school boards? And trying to disrupt governors' life-saving covid plans and recovery plans? We can't let them win by drumming up irrational fear.

Good morning, .

Let’s make it a HUGE win for Gov. Newsom and California Dems. I want the GQP to be embarrassed for even attempting to recall him and wasting so much time and money.

Please take time to vote if you haven't. You can vote today in one of several ways and even register and vote today if you need to.

There is too much at stake - rights for women, minorities, LGBTQIA people, not to mention reasonable COVID procedures for the state and the state budget. I've worked some phone banks. Nobody I've talked to wanted Larry Elder anywhere near the governor's office. Some just didn't realize how important their vote was or that they still had to vote no if they were against the recall. Spread the word.

Voting starts at 7:00 A.M. and ends at 8:00 P.M. Be sure to :vote:
