SACRAMENTO – The California Democratic Party and its grassroots volunteers will hold a Statewide Day of Action on Saturday, October 15, to support our endorsed candidates and initiatives. With vote-by-mail ballots already arriving with voters and early voting open, Californians have started to weigh in on 17 statewide ballot initiatives and battleground races across the state.
Californians can visit CADemVote.org to find events happening across the state where grassroots volunteers will help register voters, make phone calls and knock on doors to educate voters about candidates and initiatives.
Democrats have an opportunity to pick up seats in Congress to support Hillary Clinton’s vision for more jobs and a fair economy, gain ground in the Legislature to pass more good laws that help small businesses and protect families, and pass ballot initiatives that will support teachers and health care workers and make us safer.
Californians registered in record numbers in 2016, pushing Democrats’ edge to a historic high of 18 points over Republicans.
“With record-high Democratic voter registration, our volunteers are working harder than ever to reach every new voter,” said Michael Soller, communications director for the California Democratic Party. “Grassroots volunteers are our critical advantage in this election to spread Hillary Clinton’s message that Californians need vote as though your future depended on it.”
CADemVote.org launched a personalized digital “slate card” this month that allows voters to enter their address and view a list of California Democratic Party-endorsed candidates including Hillary Clinton for President, Kamala D. Harris for U.S. Senate, congressional and state legislative races, ballot initiatives, and local races and initiatives.
