Vote for David Alvarez for Mayor!

Today, Tuesday, November 19, is Election Day in San Diego. David Alvarez, our endorsed candidate for Mayor of San Diego, is surging in the polls and is tied with the former front-runner.  Let's get David elected!


If you're registered in San Diego and have not yet voted, polls are open between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Tuesday. Click here  to find the polling place nearest you.

If you still have a vote-by-mail ballot, it's too late to mail it, but you can turn it in at any polling place in the city.

Get out the vote for David by:

  •  Reaching out to five friends, family members, or coworkers to make sure they participate in this important special election.  
  • Knocking on doors or making phone calls to turn out fellow Democrats. Just call the Alvarez campaign at 619-402-1330.

Thanks for your vote and your support. We can do this!
