About This State
California! Back in the day, people searched your state for gold. Now, they search for a place with oat milk in stock (which is just as expensive!) California has a lot going for it. All you shiny happy people running on beaches better be exercising YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE this year. We've got everything you need to know to be a voter in the Golden State. California will have two main elections in 2022. Its primary election will take place on June 7, and the general will be held on November 8. (Source: Ballot Ready)Be A Voter

But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
