At its April 26th meeting, the Windsor Democratic Club will discuss six ballot measures (one local, five state) to be voted on at the upcoming June 5th election. The club will decide whether to add its endorsement for measures that have already been endorsed by the California Democratic Party or the Sonoma County Democratic Party (five of the six), and the extent to which the club will actively campaign in support or opposition to the measures.
The club will also discuss the extent to which the club wants to be involved in Congressional races outside of our own district, between now and the November election.
The California Democratic Party has endorsed state measures 68, 69, 71, and 72, and opposes measure 70. (Details of these measures are at https://ballotpedia.org/California_2018_ballot_propositions; this includes the official arguments that appear in the voter information pamphlet.)
Regional Measure 3, which includes funding to extend the SMART train system to Healdsburg, has been endorsed by the Sonoma County Democratic Party; information is here: https://ballotpedia.org/Bay_Area,_California,_Regional_Measure_3,_%22Traffic_Relief_Plan%22_Bridge_Toll_Increase_(June_2018) and here: https://mtc.ca.gov/our-work/advocate-lead/regional-measure-3
If you’re not registered to vote, or know of someone who isn’t but wants to be registered, information on registering is here: https://www.dmv.org/ca-california/voter-registration.php . The deadline for registering for the June 5th election is May 15.
