Electoral Committee Voter Guide

The DSA San Diego Voter Guide for the November General Election is available here, with near-comprehensive recommendations made by our Electoral Committee on federal, state, city, county, and other regional offices, as well as a spate of city, county, and state propositions. The guide includes two official endorsements:

  • Monica Montgomery, City Council District 4
  • California Proposition 10, repealing Costa Hawkins (and thereby clearing the way legally for municipally determined rent control)

Many thanks to members of the Electoral Committee for their dedication, commitment, and care.

San Diego DSA Recommendations for the June 5 Primary Election

To San Diego DSA members and friends,

Here is a link to our recommendations for the June 5 Primary Election.

The recommendations in this document were chosen at a special San Diego DSA meeting on April 29,
where the candidates and issues were discussed and voted on.

The pdf file can be printed as a single double sided sheet, and can be copied, emailed or distributed.

The format is useful in filling out a mail ballot, or can be taken to the polling booth.

In solidarity,
The Electoral Working Group of San Diego DSA
