It is the local elections that affect your everyday life. Don't think so? Here is just some of what is decided on a local level: what gets built and where, eviction protections, affordable housing, crosswalks, bike lanes, BART trains, AC Transit's schedule, potholes, empty parking spaces in your building, building set backs, street trees, composting, equitable distribution of city resources, nonprofit funding, and that's not all.
Yep. LOCAL MATTERS! Tell your friends. Get involved on our Election 2016 page.

Endorsements are good and all, but that's not how people get elected. Every vote counts, and we're organizing to throw our support behind our endorsements. We're looking to help you get involved. Check out our Election 2016 page for more information.
