With the Republican recall resoundingly defeated and in our rear view mirror, San Diego Democrats are looking ahead to special elections coming to our communities in La Mesa and the San Dieguito Union High School District. Neighbors in La Mesa are considering who is the right person to fill a city council seat vacated by our amazing 79th Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber. For the vacant La Mesa City Council seat, the San Diego County Democratic Party has endorsed Mejgan Afshan, a civil rights advocate and community leader!
Democrats held strategy meetings, walked our neighborhoods, called voters across the state, waived signs at busy intersections, and reached out to friends and family- all across San Diego, California, and the nation, Democrats and allies rallied together in the final weeks of the Republican recall to VOTE NO! Every weekend leading up to this recall, the Democratic Party partnered with community leaders and labor organizations to mobilize and recruit volunteers from all over San Diego County.
San Diego is a battleground county in stopping the Republican recall of Governor Newsom. We are actively working to turn out voters so that this wasteful and partisan scheme is soundly defeated. Please join us this Saturday from 1 to 3:30 p.m., and Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 4pm to 6:30 p.m. to call voters and remind them to vote NO! This will be a remote phonebank requiring access to a computer and phone. Training will be provided. To sign up, just click here, and make sure to share this with friends and family to help get out the vote!
We’ve got some answers to frequently asked questions: How to register to vote, how to confirm or update your registration, how to mark your ballot, options for returning your ballot, key election dates, more information on the recall, and how you can help. All California voters have been mailed ballots. Please mark the bubble for NO on the recall and turn in your ballot by Tuesday, September 14.
Now that ballots have been mailed to all registered voters, Democratic volunteers are connecting with friendly voters in every way we can to remind them to Vote NO on the Sept. 14 gubernatorial recall. If you can distribute doorhangers and (optionally) knock on doors to reach people, we have numerous canvassing events scheduled for the Saturdays and Sundays before election day. To view those and sign up, please go to www.sddemocrats.org/action.
Democrats across San Diego County are grabbing their masks, water bottles, hand sanitizer, and sunscreen, preparing for a countywide Day of Action to get out the vote! Ballots will be mailed to all voters next week, so it's time to engage and turn out Democrats to defeat the cynical and costly Republican recall.
We'll be handing out doorhangers reminding neighbors to vote NO and return their ballots early. For volunteers who opt to knock on doors and talk to voters, we will require vaccination, masking, and physical distancing. We will also have PPE available onsite.

California Democrats will not be fooled by the costly, cynical effort by national Republicans and right-wing extremists to recall Governor Newsom. Every voter will receive a ballot starting August 16, so our job is to turn our Democrats out! The San Diego County Democratic Party is hosting an online phonebank this Thursday evening at 6:00pm as part of a statewide effort to stop the Republican recall attempt of Governor Gavin Newsom.
Among the lessons we've been reminded of over the past year and a half is that leadership matters. Most San Diegans have done their part to fight COVID-19 by masking up and getting a vaccine, but not all of our local leaders have been reliable partners in fighting the pandemic. This week our County Party Chair, Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, had an op-ed in the Times of San Diego on County Supervisor Jim Desmond’s failure to meet the moment.
