We are celebrating our local candidates and discussing the vital importance of the 2020 census!
We all know how important funding is to support our state and local programs, so we are supporting the Census Bureau 2020 informational initiative to explain the importance of every head in Orange County being counted. Federal support is crucial to assist our population and Orange County is losing Billions of dollars in support due to inaccurate head counts from the 2010 census.
Please join us to see how you can help spread the word so that OC gets the funding necessary to support vital programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, Medicare part B – Supplemental Insurance, Highway Planning and Section 8 Housing vouchers, National School Lunch program just to name a few.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
It’s about Fair Representation
It’s in the Constitution
It’s about redistricting
It means 675 billion to state, county and community programs
It’s a civic duty
HOW IT’S USED
Safety and Emergency Preparedness
Real estate development planning

Voting is more fun with friends so what better way to kickoff the buzz around Election Day (November 3rd 2020) than by hosting a Ballot Party?
A ballot party takes place anytime the week before Election Day. The goal is to get together to decide who you’ll vote for in the upcoming election. It is typically hosted at your home, but you can always meet up at a local bar, park, or coffee house. It can be small and intimate with a guest list of just 3-5 people, or large and raucous with more than 15 people.
You don’t need to be an expert in order to host a Ballot Party — just use a trusted Voter Guide as your reference. A Ballot Party is a great way to help encourage voting while having fun with your friends.
