The voter surge is now

By Paul Mitchell

The June 7  Primary in California is less than two months away.  This means the election actually begins in a little more than three weeks, when voters begin receiving their absentee ballots in the mail.

And voter registration is increasing dramatically.

Report: Up to 500K Californians may be blocked from voting

voting

Nearly half a million California voters may be unable to participate in the state’s presidential primaries on June 7 as a result of confusion in the voter registration process, a Los Angeles Times investigation has discovered.

Hundreds of thousands of Californians who intended to register as independents may have accidentally registered instead with the ultra-conservative American Independent Party (AIP), which opposes abortion rights and same-sex marriage, and calls for building a fence along the entire U.S. border.

IHAV-DONATE

 

Dear Friend,

You’ve inspired us.

Last week, a generous donor offered to match your efforts during our “I Have a Voice” campaign. Over 120 of you answered the call. In total, you helped us raise $8,500 to push our voter mobilization work to the next level. Thank you!

In fact, last week was such a success that our board wants to join in on the fun. We’re happy to announce that our board will match every donation received today through the end of April up to $7,500. If you haven’t yet made a donation, this is a great week to do it.
