Welcome to 2020!

We are using the Voter Services for the March 3, 2020 Primary as a time to practice what will inevitably be an incredibly busy Presidential Election culminating on November 3, 2020 with Election Day. Please jump right in and volunteer to present the Pros and Cons of ballot issues, help out at candidate and issues forums, and register people to vote. Hone your skills and learn our procedures, because we will need many members working hard to successfully get through the fall election cycle.

I am very pleased that we will present Judging the Judges on January 23, 2020. Remember your frustration in November, 2018 when we had so many judicial candidates and little help in how to evaluate them? The Fourth District Appellate Court of California’s judges are eager to help us learn how to research judicial candidates and understand the judicial election process. A judge and a San Diego Bar Association lawyer will team up to present information and answer questions. Mark your calendars and invite your friends, family and neighbors. This will be an educational evening.

Finally, the League of Women Voters procedure called Program Planning is one of the annual rituals which reinforces that we are truly a grassroots organization. We will be reviewing and evaluating the national League’s positions, and review our own local League and local unit positions and areas for emphasis. I hope you will come to this important event on Saturday, January 18
