California Secretary of State Debra Bowen: Bring back our Write-In Votes!
Didn't know you can no longer write-in a candidate's name on election day in November? As part of the "Top Two" scheme, candidates are no longer allowed to run as “independents” or “write-ins” in the general election in California. It's just another part of the attack on democracy by the corporate-owned parties (flying around in jets run billion $ campaigns), trying to lock out any challenges to their hold on power as our economy spirals downward and their sell-out to the billionaire and corporate interests becomes more clear every day. They are doing in quietly, of course, behind the scenes, so we need your help to expose it -- a first step is by signing this petition.
