Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club
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.

Additionally, we shall have a formal debate on whether the Electoral College should continue to exist, or be abolished. Two of our board members, Jason Bercovitch (keep) and Steve Natoli (abolish) shall be the debate participants.
And as always, we will continue our Presidential Straw Poll.
