Register to Vote by October 19th!
It is easier to be involved in electing good legislators than it is to fight every bad piece of legislation that comes up in the course of a year. On Tuesday, November 3rd, between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., we have the opportunity to go to the polls, exercise our God-given responsibilities and rights, and send a message concerning the direction that our government should take over the course of the next few years. The moral fabric of our nation and our liberties are in great peril.
Be a faithful steward of the freedoms God has entrusted to us. Protect your rights and liberties – get involved in the election process. Register to vote, support good candidates, and vote on November 3rd.
Are you properly registered to vote for the upcoming November 3rd General Election? You or your eligible children should (re)register IF:
• you have moved or changed your name since the last election in which you voted.
• you are unsure if you are properly registered to vote.
• you or your child will turn 18 years old by November 3rd.
The deadline for registering to vote is Monday, October 19th, 2020.
Voting by Absentee Ballot
(aka “Vote-by-Mail ballot”)
Voting by absentee ballot allows you to take your time when marking your ballot and vote wherever is convenient for you, such as in your home. It also assures you that no last minute emergency will keep you from casting your important vote.
In 2020, every registered voter in California will receive a vote-by-mail ballot. The deadline for registering to vote is Monday, October 19th, 2020. A request for an absentee ballot is not needed.
If you want a vote-by-mail ballot and have not yet registered to vote, please register as soon as possible so that you can receive the absentee ballot before Election Day, November 3rd.
If you forget to mail in your absentee ballot on time, you can hand deliver it to your local (or any) polling place in the county in which you are registered or you can turn it in to the office of your county elections official before 8 p.m. on General Election Day, November 3rd. If you need someone else to hand deliver your absentee ballot, you may authorize a relative or a person residing at your address to do so by filling out the appropriate place on the envelope that accompanies the ballot that you received by mail.
Additional questions about absentee ballots and voting in your county can be answered by your local county elections office, which you can locate by clicking here.

Other Important Items
If you do not have enough information to vote on a particular issue or office, you can leave that space blank and vote on the rest.
Initiatives/propositions, such as many so-called campaign reform measures, are not always what they appear to be. All bond issues, for example, involve government borrowing at interest from the future, putting additional burdens of indebtedness on our children. When there are initiatives/propositions on your ballot, read each proposition carefully, including the “for and against” positions before voting.
Beware of Slate Mailers! “Slate mailers” are election pieces that list a number of candidates and/or propositions to vote for or against. Some slates are legitimate and very helpful, but many are deliberately designed to deceive voters. For example, one slate in a previous election looked like it came from one political party, but it had several ballot propositions listed with positions opposite of that party. Any candidates or propositions with an asterisk by them have paid to advertise on that slate. You may want to consider throwing slate mailers out unless you are convinced that you know the philosophy of the people who produced them and you agree with that philosophy.
