Today is National Voter Registration Day! Please take a moment to register to vote, or check that you are registered to vote at your current address.

The election is only 42 days away, and voters will have the opportunity to decide important races from the President all the way down the ballot, plus a number of important issues, including Prop 14 (a yes vote would increase stem cell research funding), Prop 15 (a yes vote would increase education funding), and Prop 21 (a yes would would allow cities to institute rent control).

Here are a few election resources:

Help with Yes on Prop 15 to fund schools and communities!
This Saturday afternoon (Sept 26), and on Saturday Oct 10, we’re teaming up with fellow union members to make phone calls for Yes on Prop. 15. This proposition would fix a business tax loophole to fund education and other public services. We will all gather on Zoom, have a short training at the start, and make calls to voters in California. Sign up below to join!
