Ballot Breakdown Party!
Monday, October 29, 2018, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The government sets policies that touch every aspect of our food system, from our health to the environment. Every week you vote with your fork at CUESA markets—now it’s time to vote with your vote! Midterm elections are around the corner, and they provide an opportunity for us to collectively uphold our values and support the candidates and ballot measures that will do the same.
Join CUESA at the Ferry Building for a deep dive into the November ballot. At this interactive workshop, you’ll learn who’s on it and what’s on it, fill out your sample ballot and ask questions to help you make an informed and impactful statement at the voting booth.
Don’t sit on the sidelines until 2020. By voting on November 6, you can create change on the local level, and shape the world you want to live in.
