We’re getting close to Election Day. In years past it was possible to vote early or choose a mail in ballot and send it back to the Alameda County Registrar’s office in advance of Election Day. But I don’t think we’ve ever seen the kind of early voting response that we’re seeing this year. When I checked this morning, over 14,000 of the 28,000 voters in Oakland District 3 who voted in the last two general elections have already voted. And at least 3,000 more voters who didn’t vote in November of 2016 and 2018 have also voted this year. (Yep, over 17,000 ballots have already been cast in District 3.)
That still leaves thousands of votes still up for grabs, and it’s important to keep reaching out to voters with a message of hope and change. Here’s an excerpt of the message I’m sending to voters today:
Despite the challenges, there is hope that we can make the changes that will put Oakland’s children on a path to a brighter future. I am grateful for your continued support!
Here’s a video I shared recently with a group of teachers in Oakland. It’s posted on Vimeo and you should feel free to share it with your contacts here in District 3 in Oakland.
