Election time is fast approaching! March 3, 2020 is the Presidential Primary.
Vote by mail ballots have already been sent to military and overseas voters. San Diego mail ballots will start arriving after February 3, 2020. We’re planning a GO Team kick-off for volunteers in Point Loma, Ocean Beach and Midway the first weekend in February. The voter registration deadline is February 18, 2020.
This Sunday January 26th at our General Meeting we’ll be talking through the Propositions and Ballot Measures.
To help us understand the State Propositions and Local Ballot Measures we are pleased to welcome back guest speakers Anne Hoiberg and Cody Petterson, who will explain the pros and cons and field questions from members.
Bring your sample ballots or voter guides with you and check off your decisions as we go along. Feel free to invite friends and neighbors who are looking for some partisan Democratic guidance.
