The next scheduled election will be November 5, 2019. We will begin our endorsement process in the coming months for Santa Barbara City Council. Please check back here for an update.  If you are a previously endorsed incumbent, please contact Joe Pierre jpierre3@comcast.net


Due to the California Democratic Party moving its primary to March of 2020, endorsements for that election will begin earlier than usual.
