Meeting the Candidates

Over 70 members attended our September 12th Zoom meeting. Several of the Democratic candidates presented their positions. San Diego County Board of Supervisors Candidate Dr. Terra Lawson-Remer spoke to us about the challenges the Board will face in the near future, and SMDC President Heather Roberts explained how the Relational Organizing can be used to encourage voters to participate in the November elections. The public safety concerns due to Covid-19 have forced some major changes to the polling process, and Heather explained how voting by mail, voting early, and using ballot boxes provided by the Registrar of Voters (ROV) at convenient locations can guarantee safe and secure voting.
