6/3/08 ELECTION DAY: Save Rent Control; No on 98

by $ Tuesday, Jun. 03, 2008 at 11:27 PM

RUN TO YOUR POLLING PLACE OR THE COUNTRY REGISTRAR FIRST THING 6/3 ELECTION DAY AT 7 A.M. DO NOT DELAY. You can vote at your polling place or the County Registrar’s office to save rent control and the homes of millions of Californians by voting No on 98/Yes on 99 . Our victory will come down to a handful of votes, so you must vote to save rent control and the environment. Only 25% of absentee ballots have been returned, so we NEED YOUR VOTE.

RUN TO YOUR POLLING PLACE OR THE COUNTRY REGISTRAR FIRST THING 6/3 ELECTION DAY AT 7 A.M. DO NOT DELAY. You can vote at your polling place or the County Registrar’s office to save rent control and the homes of millions of Californians by voting No on 98/Yes on 99 . Our victory will come down to a handful of votes, so you must vote to save rent control and the environment. Only 25% of absentee ballots have been returned, so we NEED YOUR VOTE.

You can find your County Registrar in the blue-striped white pages of your telephone book and at:

IF THERE IS A PROBLEM AT YOUR POLLING PLACE, TAKE A CAB TO YOUR COUNTY REGISTRAR. Do not wait until later in the day because you might forget or some emergency might arise and you may not have time to vote. THE FIRST THING YOU MUST DO TODAY IS VOTE SO THAT YOU HAVE A ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD.

You do not have to vote on everything on the ballot, but PLEASE DO VOTE No on 98/Yes on 99 .

If you are voting absentee on the ballot you received in the mail, DO NOT MAIL IT; YOU MUST WALK IT to either your County Registrar or to any polling place.

Your polling place is on the back of your County booklet. PLEASE NOTE, SOME POLLING PLACES HAVE CHANGED, so be sure to check your polling place location. You can also find your polling place for any county at:


It is because the DEMOCRATIC PARTY MOVED THE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY TO FEBRUARY in their failed, disgusting attempt to overturn term limits that we will have a low voter turnout in June as Americans need a movie star to push them to the polls, UNLESS WE PUSH THEM OURSELVES.

PROPOSITION 98 is not assured of defeat, contrary to the above article, UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY VOTE NO ON 98. In a low voter turnout election, landlords and their friends usually prevail. YOU HAVE TO EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE and you should be doing that in every single election.

The polling places for the two main counties which must pull us through this terrible crisis with a VERY HIGH VOTER TURNOUT are:

Los Angeles

and San Francisco

REMEMBER: THE ONLY POLL THAT COUNTS IS THE JUNE 3 ELECTION. All other polls are just wishful thinking which does not help; IT IS YOUR VOTE THAT COUNTS.


California has 58 counties (“The Great 58”). WE EXPECT ALL PRO RENT CONTROL AND PRO-ENVIRONMENTAL VOTERS TO VOTE IN THIS ELECTION TO SAVE OUR STATE, THE GREAT 58. You cannot afford to stay home; the home and state you save will be your own. There are 28 million adults in California. We need to have a high voter turnout of 13 MILLION VOTERS IN THIS ELECTION. This is a MAJOR CRISIS FOR THE ENTIRE STATE AS IT PROP 98 WILL CAUSE THE DISLOCATION OF THE ENTIRE WORKINGCLASS, without whose labor, the California economy will STOP. We are talking about the homes we live in, the air we breathe, the water we drink and much more being totally unregulated. There will be no just cause eviction if Prop 98 passes, which means the landlords, who are funding Prop 98, will come up with any excuse to evict tenants so as to raise rents sky high as we have no vacancy control in California. SINCE WE HAVE NO OTHER AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN CALIFORNIA, PROP 98 WILL CAUSE THE HOMELESSNESS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

For more information on Props 98 and 99, see:

PLEASE NOTE: Just because we have a broad base of opposition to Prop 98 does not mean anything unless YOU ACTUALLY VOTE NO ON 98.
