Voting Matters - Make Your Voice Heard!

Your vote is your voice, and big changes are coming in the California State Legislature. You’ll have your first opportunity to influence those changes by voting in the June 7th Primary. In addition, California is losing a seat in Congress and so you may be represented by someone new. That’s why it is important to understand the changes and vote! 

Your Vote. Your Voice.
