Election Night Vote Counting

From the Riverside Registrar of Voters:

Election Night vote counting is complete but results are not final. Approximately 200,000 Vote-by-Mail, 45,000 Provisional and 5,000 damaged ballots that require duplication still must be processed. Work on those begins Wednesday morning. Ballots that are postmarked on or before Election Day and received no later than Friday also remain to be counted. The next updated results will be posted at 6:00pm on Friday.

Congratulations to the Democratic Candidates!

Congratulations to all the candidates who ran this election. Whether you won, lost, or are still in a tight race where every ballot counted matters – you are applauded for placing yourself “in the arena” of our national, state and local politics.  We need informed and concerned citizens such as yourself to take that big step and run for office to help our communities.  To all of you – Thank You!

And to all the volunteers who canvassed, made phone calls or texts, wrote post cards, contributed financially, or helped in many other ways – Thank You for being involved – you are the well oiled gears that make this process possible.

Message from the RCDP Chair

Eleven dead at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Bombs being sent to past and present elected officials. Hatred being spread by the President.

When will we be able to worship without fear, use our right of freedom of speech without fear, begin to live our lives without the fear of losing our life?

When will those who help spread fear and hate realize this country is not being made great again? Instead, it’s being broken down one day at a time

When will our Congress start to act to correct this awful misdirection our country is heading?

When will we again be the “United” States?
