According to the U.S. Census, 6 million Americans did not vote in 2008 because they did not know how to register or they missed their state's voter registration deadline. With national and state elections taking place this November, we need to make sure every American is registered and ready to vote in 2014!

NWPC-Alameda North endorsed candidates and measures won big on election night! All seven endorsed ballot measures passed, including the nation’s first ever tax on sugar-sweetened beverages in Berkeley and the nation’s highest minimum wage in Oakland, which also mandates paid sick days. Our endorsed candidates ran great campaigns and were also incredibly successful.
