California’s body of voters is not representative of the state’s eligible voting population. Voting rates are low among ethnic, low-income and younger adults, and the state’s ethnic communities are also less likely to communicate with public officials. As a result, their priorities and preferences are less likely to be heard.
We support efforts that foster greater participation in elections and public decision making among underrepresented populations, including low-income, ethnic, and immigrant communities.
This includes supporting organizations that:
Work regionally or statewide
Engage residents during and between election cycles
