The deadline to register to vote in California is tomorrow, October 22. If you are not sure if you are registered, here’s a step by step guide to get your vote in:
Stefan and I attended a fundraiser at a home in Berkeley last night for Josh Harder, who is running for Congress in the hotly contested purple District 10. I have friends and clients who have been canvassing to get out the vote there and I figured making a donation was the least I could do. The candidate was knowledgeable and passionate about his district. He grew up there and understands his community and would be an excellent advocate. The point he made was that the issues being decided right now matter and affect the lives of people every single one of us knows. These range from DACA to eliminating coverage for pre-existing conditions, to personality driven tariff wars driving down the price of walnuts. In addition, this is one of 24 key races (9 of which are in California) that can change the balance of power in Congress. If you want to donate to Josh Harder’s campaign, click here.
But more importantly, please vote and encourage everyone you know to do so as well. Help people figure it out by asking them if they have a plan to get there and sharing these links.
