September 2021 Recall (VOTE NO!)

These are my thoughts on the September 2021 California Governor recall election. tl;dr: VOTE NO ON QUESTION 1. Make sure everyone you know VOTES NO ON QUESTION 1. Make sure you got your mail-in ballot, and return it to a dropbox if easy or to USPS if not, as soon as possible. Don’t dilly-dally on voting just because question 2 is confusing. This election is not about Gavin Newsom. This election is about the Republican Party of California and about a loophole in the recall process. Read On →

March 2020

This is a relatively short post. The most controversial election on my ballot is the Presidential primary, and I’m pretty sure most of my friends have plenty of information about that already. All five propositions are “give money to kids?” and seem like easy yeses. There are only a few other contested positions, and most of them are incumbents vs relatively unknown challengers.

Please don’t skip the local school funding propositions, which may require supermajorities to pass! My strongest recommendations on this ballot are to vote yes on Alameda County Measure C and Berkeley Measures E, G, and H.

On the whole, I’ve found fewer candidates to be excited about than in past years, and lots of races where I’m finding it hard to come to a decision. I’d love to hear feedback from friends in the next week before the election!
