Register voters in San Diego

As I mentioned a few days ago, the San Diego voter registration group SDVOTER registered voters at the LGBT Pride Festival last weekend, and that I was curious about the final total of registrations. We registered 297 voters. 70% registered as Democrats, and we had 3 Republican registrations. Not 3%. Three. Not that I'm gloating or anything like that.

The next event where we'll register voters is at CityFest on Sunday August 12 between 10 am and 7 pm. Voter registration will be at the Obama booth on 5th Avenue between Brooks & Anderson (east side of the street). There will be shuttle service from the following locations:

Florence Elementary, 1st and University
6th Ave and Upas St
6th Ave and Laurel St

If you can work a two hour shift, sign up at

SDVOTER has registered 1,973 voters so far this year, and a grand total of 15,000 voters since 2004! If you'd like to get involved there will be a voter registration training held on Saturday August 4 between 1:00 and 3:00 at Giovanni's Restaurant at 9353 Clairemont Mesa Blvd in San Diego. Please join us sometime. I don't do it all the time like some dedicated souls, but several times a year I join them, and it's always fun and rewarding. Come on down!
