Join the one million Californians who have already voted
Tuesday, Nov. 6 is Election Day
Californians are casting votes and deciding who will become the next president of the United States, the composition of the U.S. Congress, the California Legislature and local offices.
Voters are also making decisions on a number of statewide initiatives that affect punishment for crimes, food labeling rules and funding for higher education. In case you missed our announcement, you should know that in an effort to stop further budget cuts to Sacramento State and the California State University System, the Sacramento State Alumni Association Board of Directors voted to endorse Proposition 30.
Sacramento State stands to lose millions of dollars in funding if Proposition 30 does not receive voter approval on the November ballot. When compounded by prior year budget cuts, a cut of this magnitude would adversely affect the number of eligible students admitted to the university and the number of course sections we can offer.
The importance of participating in our democratic process is a hallmark of what we learned at Sac State. As Alumni Board President Margot Bach stated in our last e-newsletter, “While voting to increase taxes is not ideal in this time of economic challenges, the opportunity to play it forward is here and we need to support students of today and tomorrow who are seeking the same opportunities that we had.”
