"Defend Democracy, Protect The Vote"

As California's Secretary of State and Chief Elections officer, I will ensure accurate, transparent and verifiable vote counts in all California elections. I will defend our democracy and protect YOUR vote.

Vote for me June 5th, 2018 on the Green Party ticket and I will make sure that absolutely every single ballot that is cast in California elections is counted. We'll count them twice if we have to. #MandatoryRecounts #HandCountedPaperBallots #RankedChoiceVoting #ProportionalRepresentation #EndTopTwoSolidarity - Erik Rydberg "Defend Democracy, Protect The Vote"

 

Democracy

Democracy comes from the Iroquois Confederacy. The Iroquois Confederacy is the oldest still functioning participatory democracy in the world and was the basis on which America's Government was built. Many prominent land owners with the initial founding government of the United State didn't approve of Democracy. Calling it "Mob Rule." and that it would allow the poor to over throw the rich. "Democracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man’s life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure..."  - John Adams

    I would recommend larger text on Erik’s statement (and possibly fewer words or more paragraph breaks). The photos are amazing! Overall, great design.
