Democrats Try to Rig Elections to Target San Diego, Last CA GOP Stronghold

California Democrats are trying to rig another set of elections, pushing a bill that will tilt elections in favor of Democrats in San Diego, the last bastion of Republican dominance in Southern California.

The San Diego Union Tribune reports:

The bill by Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, would allow for a charter amendment that would require races for county offices to be determined in the November general election, regardless of the results in the June primary. The bill only applies to San Diego County.

Currently, politicians can be elected into those offices if they receive more than 50 percent of the vote in the primary. But if the charter is amended as authorized by Gloria’s bill, the top-two candidates in the primary will face each other in the November general election regardless of the primary outcome.

Pushing all countywide elections to the November general election will force campaigns to last longer and cost more, even if there is a clear winner after the primary under the current rules.  This change will also give Democrats a strong advantage over Republicans, because Democrats turn out in larger numbers in general elections.

Even though county offices are supposedly nonpartisan, this bill will only affect San Diego County, where all the county supervisors are Republicans.

California Democrats — who enjoy the backing of powerful public sector unions — have been working overtime to the rig election process to favor Democrats in cities, counties, and targeted districts across the state.




Opponents of the bill, including the lobbyist for San Diego County, claim the legislation is completely unnecessary, since existing law already allows the county charter to be amended, but the local process involves going to the county voters directly, not the Democrat-dominated state legislature.



Nothing to see here, just Dems trying to rig elections in states they already have significant control of.
