If you’re voting for Trump and the end of democracy, this is not the voting guide for you.
If you’re looking for an absolutely non-partisan guide, gohere and here.
Although Indivisible Ventura is not officially endorsing any particular candidate, we’ve pulled together endorsements from other groups we respect for your consideration, along with relevant reference materials.

We have promises to keep to Rep. Elijah Cummings, to Rep. John Lewis and to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg – that we would care for the country they sacrificed so much for. It’s now our job to fix what we can and to create a path to a more just and sustainable future for those who come after us. At a polling booth, or at our own kitchen tables, armed with a pen and a ballot, we are going to fight for the American dream for everyone.
Action #1 – Understand this meme. In CA, it’s true for REGISTERED voters ONLY!
If you are actually registered, but your polling place doesn’t have the correct information to determine that fact, or there is conflicting information about your registration, you will be given a provisional ballot on Election Day. You will be allowed to vote, given a tracking number to follow your ballot and your vote will be counted just like any other. Issues that require a provisional ballot include:
Voter’s name is not on the current roster.
Voter’s name is on the roster and HAS moved.
Vote-By-Mail Voter who does not have a Vote-By-Mail ballot to surrender. (giving them another ballot at the polling place would mean two ballots were issued to them. Despite what Trump says, we don’t issue people extra ballots.)
Voter is marked in register as “see ID” and has no ID. (first time federal voter)
Voter selects a ballot other than their listed party or selects an unauthorized party (primary only – doesn’t apply for this election)
You may also be at the wrong polling place. (See Action #4)
