Instead, we will be gathering with the San Diego County Democratic Party in Downtown San Diego at the Westin Gaslamp Horton Plaza at 910 Broadway Circle, San Diego, CA 92101. The party starts at 8:15pm, so keep working to elect our Democratic candidates until that time!
Finally, there will be no club meeting in December. We will be celebrating the holidays with fellow Democratic clubs at a joint Holiday Party on Sunday, December 11 in the afternoon, so mark your calendars accordingly! More details to follow post-election!
Before you fill-out your ballots, check out our club’s June 7, 2016 Primary Election endorsements.

If you are an absentee ballot voter, be sure to mail back your ballot early, or drop it off at the county Registrar of Voters office (5600 Overland Ave, Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92123).
The earlier you vote, the earlier you will be taken off the contact lists of campaigns — this means less phone calls and canvassers to deal with as the election gets closer!

The latest precinct-by-precinct vote tally in the hard-fought 52nd Congressional District campaign between Congressman Scott Peters and Tea Party’s Carl DeMaio, shows that our Clairemont community overwhelmingly supported Scott Peters’s re-election.
DeMaio was held to no more than 52% of the vote in his best-performing precinct, only winning five — two of those five by a small plurality. Meanwhile, Scott Peters won four Clairemont precincts with over 60% of the vote, and won everything else!

Our former San Diego City Councilwoman Donna Frye spoke out today about Tea Party extremist Carl DeMaio.
