Community Forum: Does Your Vote Count in California?
Join us for a thoughtful, enlightening evening that examines how our electoral system represents the many voices of California.
- Does the new primary calendar benefit California?
- What are the biggest issues facing California in this election year, and are our national leaders paying enough attention to them?
- How will California ballots be counted? Should we be worried about electronic voting?
