The Race Is On


Council District 6 Election in Dead Heat

A New Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research survey among 400 likely November voters in San Diego's 6th City Council District Shows Carol Kim statistically tied with her opponent.  The two-point margin is within the poll's margin of error.

  • In a survey of 400 likely voters conducted about a week ago, her opponent was at 41% and Kim was at 39%.  As pollsters say, it's a statistical dead heat.



Here's How you can help.


Hello Members of the Democrats for Equality,

The November 4th election is 3 months away! We need each and every one of you to get involved in the campaign.  We need your help contacting voters in District 6. Sign up to make calls or go door-to-door to tell our community why Carol Kim is the only person who should represent our neighborhoods.

Carol is running for San Diego City Council, District 6 and if she is elected to the City Council, this will mean that the Democrats will have a veto-proof majority on the City Council. Carol is an educator, a mother and a member of our community. There's a lot at stake in this election and we need you to get involved today.

If you would like to know more about Carol Kim please visit our website  

Sign up for a shift today on our website:  We are making phone calls and going door-to-door every day ---- don't miss out on our voter contact efforts!

Club Seeking Two Additional Board Members



Dems for Equality adopted a By-Laws change that called for two "at-large" Board members.  Board members must be members in good standing of San Diego Dems for Equality.  At-large Board members are expected to attend monthly and specially called Board meetings, as well as manage special projects as requested by the Board.


If you are interested in election to the Board, contact us HERE.
