It is barricades time this Get Out The Vote (GOTV) 4-day voting period, Nov 3-6, 2018, to support Cal Prop 10 to extend rent control and vacancy control and to support SF Prop C to house the homeless. These 2 propositions will be close and each only needs 50% plus 1 vote to pass so your vote will make a difference. Considering we have a housing emergency statewide, we need every single supporter of Props 10 and Prop C to vote to literally keep us all housed.

The property owners always vote and those who support us will vote for Cal Prop 10 and SF Prop C. It is the tenant voters who must be pushed to the polls until 7:45 pm Election Night, November 6, 2018, and must be reminded to mail their vote by mail ballots if they completed one NO LATER than November 6, 2018 so it is postmarked NO LATER than November 6, 2018 and RECEIVED NO LATER THAN November 9, 2018 Thus, it is PRACTICALLY MANDATORY to HAND-DELIVER YOUR VOTE BY MAIL BALLOT FROM NOW THROUGH ELECTION DAY to your Registrar of Voters, which in San Francisco is at City Hall, basement on the Van Ness side, from now through Election Day, November 6, 2018, or to a polling place on Election Day.

There is lots of money being poured into these campaigns by the landlords and real estate speculators. Just remember, it is people who vote, not money. We, the workingclass, the 80% of Americans who sell our labor for less than $80,000 a year, are by far the majority. We just have to vote for Cal Prop 10 and SF Prop C to save our homes and house the homeless. San Francisco rent control ballot measures usually succeed despite being outspent by landlords and real estate speculators because we have the votes.

California has the 6th largest economy in the world and we produce the most food of any state in the country. California has 663,000 millionaire households including 124 billionaires. San Francisco has 147,400 millionaires and 26 billionaires. There is no excuse for any poverty or any homelessness in California or in San Francisco. Get out there and vote Yes on 10 and Yes on C now!
