PLEASE VOTE NO ON THE RECALL

September 14 is election day, but every registered voter should have received their ballot in the mail and you can mail it in or drop it in an official Alameda County dropbox any time. There are two questions. Please vote NO on the first question - NO RECALL. We stand behind Governor Newsom and we don't need the chaos a recall will inevitably give us. You do not have to answer the second question. Your NO vote on the recall will be counted even if you do not answer the second question.

If you want to help, there is no shortage of ways to help the NO ON THE RECALL campaign. You can text, you can phone, and you can even knock on doors. Many groups are organizing efforts, and here's your one stop shop to sign up for Alameda County Democratic Party events: https://www.mobilize.us/cadems/

We look forward to joining you on Thursday, Sept. 16 with our Governor still in place!
