Election Protection Opportunities

The California Democratic Party is coordinating election protection efforts throughout the state. This year it is easier than ever to help at the polls. Regional training in Los Angeles and a telephone training session are being offered on November 2.  All you need is to go through the brief training and then set aside time on election day to help. Lawyers are needed at the polls and also to be available for court appearances, if necessary. With all the voting systems transitions that have occurred in California, these efforts are especially important.

CAOC Endorsements

CAOC makes the following endorsements:

Governor:  Phil Angelides
Watch Angelides' new TV ad. Please click on www.angelides.com to view the newest TV ad that will start airing today. Please help keep the ad on the air with your donations. A strong turnout for Angelides helps the entire ticket!

Proposition 90:  No. 
Prop 90 is not just about eminent domain.  It has a poison pill provision requiring that property owners be compensated for any governmental action that reduces the theoretical value of their property. Property is not limited to real property.  So a restriction on insurance that costs an insurance company money could theoretically be challenged by the insurer and permit it to seek compensation for any financial losses from the state.

CAOC does not endorse in judicial races.  Please check with your local TLA which may have recommendations.
