Get the low-down on the upcoming ADEM elections

Dec. 1, 2022


Every two years, California registered Democratic Party voters elect delegates to the California Democratic Party (CDP). Party delegates control the influential Democratic Party endorsements for state and federal offices, including the State Assembly, State Senate, Governor, and US Senator. To ensure that San Francisco elects pro-housing candidates to state and federal offices, we encourage all pro-housing Democrats to register for the ADEM elections by the deadline on Saturday, December 31 at 11:59 PM Pacific time. Voters will receive their ballots in January, and they must return ballots by January 31. It takes five minutes: don't miss out!
