Welcome to the Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club website

Our club provides an opportunity for citizens to connect with one another, learn about political issues and Democratic values, and help elect Democrats to public office.  We meet monthly to hear speakers on issues that affect our community, socialize, and plan activities to support Democratic Candidates.

Next Meeting: Monday, September 28th at 7:00pm (Online Meeting)

This meeting will be an online meeting using Zoom. We will send out emails with the login information over the next few weeks.

On the agenda:

– The San Diego County Democratic Party Grassroots Organizing (GO) Team plans for this election, presented by the GO Team North Inland Regional Coordinator and our very own secretary: Sunny Escovedo

– A presentation of all state propositions and city/county measures on the ballot this election, detailed as no one else can by our expert ballot guru: Jason Bercovitch

Another local club, The Democrats of 92127, will be joining us for this meeting. We figured that since both clubs meet on the same day and time, and both clubs were planning something regarding information on the propositions and measures on the ballot this election, that it made sense for us to combine our meetings. So let’s warmly welcome president Katie Kemple and the other members of the Democrats of 92127 on Sept. 28th!

Hope to see you all on Monday, September 28th!

This meeting was all about voting! We had two presentations:

The Registrar of Voters himself, Michael Vu was also on hand to add more detail and help answer questions.
