Sacramento voters receive ballots by mail at the beginning of February – and have until March 3rd to vote.

We will be providing food and drinks as well as “Ballot Experts” who can answer any questions you have about voting and the races and initiatives on your ballot.
Don’t want to make your final decisions about who you are voting for on that day?
Come just to participate in dialogue – you can bring along a Sample Ballot and tentatively mark your votes.

We are encouraging people to vote early so they can turn in their ballots and have their vote counted ASAP.
Bring your friends!

We would love a $5 to $10 donation to cover our costs.
