2018 Voter Guide

AFSCME 3299 Endorsements for 2018 Primary Elections.

This year, Californians will head to the polls to elect officials who make decisions that impact UC, like the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, and the State Superintendent of Instruction, who are UC Regents. We need to make sure our allies are in those seats.

Primary elections are crucial because they narrow down the pool of candidates to just two top candidates, who then move on to the general elections in November. Fewer people vote during the primaries, so your vote can have a huge impact!

Below is a list of candidates endorsed by AFSCME 3299 because they have proven records of standing with working people and will support our fight for equality at UC!
