Who Would the Taco Vote For? ~ GO VOTE TODAY! Here’s How To Find Your Polling Place

10:19 AM PDT on June 5, 2018

[dropcap size=big]P[/dropcap]olls are open across Southern California for the June 5 state primary election. Voters will decide on candidates in California's "top-two" system, where the top two voter-getters regardless of party move on to Round 2, the midterm election on November 6.

In California we're looking at options for governor, senator, and a variety of Republican House seats that Democrats consider vulnerable in the aftermath of the 2016 election of Donald Trump. At the local level, you'll also pick choices for sheriffs (which are elected, not appointed), district attorneys, county supervisors, mayors, and other offices.

For people classified as "Latino" the day is especially important. Brown people in the United States disproportionally under-vote compared to the size of their eligible voter pool. That means the constituency's concerns are not prioritized when it comes to governance.

Every vote counts — So go vote! Or go register and get ready for November! And finally, ask yourself — Who would the Taco vote for?

SECRETARY OF STATE: Call 800-345-VOTE (8683) to find your polling place. Or read all the basics here. Elections are organized at the county level, and reported to the California secretary of state.
