Tues 12/10: Today’s do-it-ourselves-democracy action – 2 actions for election security.

Action #1 – Call your senator to add election security to the budget on Dec. 20th.

Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code]  and I’m asking Senator______ to protect election security by:
1. Dedicating at least the $600 million the house passed for election security 
2. Requiring hand-marked paper ballots only, no machine marked paper ballots, with the single exception of non-tabulating ballot marking devices for voters who need assistance.
3. Requiring a secure chain of custody of the ballots.

We’ll be asking voters in Mississippi to turn out again on November 27th in a Special Election Runoff to help Democrat Mike Espy, former congressman and Secretary of Agriculture in the Clinton administration, beat Republican incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is now really famous for doing this. If he wins this runoff, he’ll also become the first black senator for that state since Reconstruction.

Here’s a map to Santino’s Pizza. It’s at 4231 Telegraph Rd., Ventura, 93003.

Fri 5/26: Be A Voter! Faster! Indivisible Ventura guides you through the ballot.

(Updated with revised endorsement info. 5/30/18, 6/1/18)

First, make sure you have a Voting Plan!

What the heck is that? Is it boring? Is it painful?

A voting plan is described here and “No” and “No.”

Indivisible Ventura is not officially endorsing any particular candidate, but we’ve pulled together endorsements from other groups we respect for you to read and compare along with reference materials. This is a long ballot and we want to make the process easier for everyone.

Why should our husbands be the only ones to benefit from our hours of research?

Rules for voting by mail are at the bottom.
TLDR version:
SIGN THE ENVELOPE!
SIGN THE ENVELOPE!
SIGN THE ENVELOPE!

Add (2) stamps before dropping it in a mailbox, or drop it off at a poll box.

Did you miss the registration deadline and are now sad you can’t join in?
Hah! You can still register and vote up to and on Election Day! See information at the bottom under “Ventura County Voter Resources”.

UPDATE: This is not the Democratic endorsement guide you’re looking for…
Voters are now gettting something that looks like this in the mail. This is NOT FROM THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY! This is a commercial advertisement mailer from “Voter Guide Slate Cards“, paid for by the candidates that appear on it.

Here are the actual endorsements from various Democratic Party entities

  • CA Democratic Party (CADEM) here.
  • Ventura Club of Ventura: here.

The Candidates!

Here are the ballot sections. We’ve included a few endorsements in the picture segments to give you an idea of who is supporting each candidate. Click on the links at the bottom of each segment for more complete endorsements information.

Remember that this is a “jungle primary” where no party is guaranteed a slot on the November ballot, so be careful of using your vote on the cute underdog in the corner. Here’s a good article on the dangers inherent in this top-two primary system.

Governor – Pick (1) one

The highest elected official in California: Oversees most state departments and agencies. Prepares annual state budget. Approves or rejects new state laws.
