Promote and Protect the Vote

Since 1992, the California Democratic Party (CDP), through our Promote and Protect the Vote (P2TV) Program, has been protecting the rights of all voters and ensuring that every vote counts. We are protecting the right to vote against Republican efforts to limit turnout. You can learn about our Promote and Protect the Vote Program, take advantage of our services, and how you can also take action to protect the vote!
