The United States held its first election on July 4, 1776. People all over the world are fighting to follow our example. The expected turnout for tomorrow’s primary election in California is expected to be around 20-25%. That is much too low, considering what is at stake. Please exercise your privilege to choose who governs you. Veterans, starting with the American Revolution, fought and lost their lives or were wounded in order to guarantee our democratic system and your right to vote. Please honor them by voting.
