Last month, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla received the endorsement of the Los Angeles Times.
Alex Padilla is the clear choice for California’s secretary of state
Alex Padilla for California secretary of state
OUR VIEW: We recommend: Becerra for attorney general, Padilla for secretary of state
Secretary of State Alex Padilla keeps earning respected endorsements in his reelection bid. The Bakersfield Californian and Orange County Register join the Los Angeles Times and others in listing him as their choice for California Secretary of State.
In the wake of the 2016 elections, election cybersecurity has become a heightened concern for election administrators as well as the general public. While Trump and the Republican Congress have failed to act to further safeguard our elections, Secretary Padilla has stepped up. Secretary Padilla is working diligently to make sure California’s elections are both accessible and secure. “With the 2020 elections looming and more foreign meddling possible, experience will count heading a department that oversees elections,” writes The Bakersfield Californian.
Secretary Padilla is also doing an incredible job of increasing voter registration and participation rates. Last month, he announced that more than 200,000 16- and 17-year-olds have pre-registered to vote since the start of the program. And over 100,000 of whom have turned 18 and are now eligible to vote this November!
As the Los Angeles Times writes, “Alex Padilla has by and large done a solid job in his first four-year term as California’s Secretary of State and he should be returned to Sacramento for a second term.”
He deserves to be re-elected, but we need your help to make sure he can keep fighting for us in his next term.
Secretary Padilla has been a leader in election cybersecurity and making it easier for more eligible citizens to register to vote and to cast their ballot. Secretary Padilla is also leading efforts to elect more Democratic Secretaries of State across the country so other states can advance the pro-voter reforms that have been implemented in Calfiornia.
Working together, we’ll make sure that every voter’s voice is heard.
Thank you for all your support,
