Action is the antidote to despair.
The ballot is stronger than the bullet.
Your VOTE is priceless!…that's why everyone wants to buy it
Change is inevitable…except from a vending machine
Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do this is by not voting.
If American women would increase their voting turnout by ten percent, I think we would see an end to all of the budget cuts in programs benefiting women and children.
If you feel government doesn't really serve or represent you, if you feel you haven't been given a decent selection of candidates or a real voice in government, then the most important thing to do about it is VOTE for Mina Joanna Nichols for Ventura County Recorder.
I believe that government is supposed to serve the people, we need to make it work for people.
I have complete faith in Democracy, but I also have deep concerns about what passes for Democracy lately. I want to help every citizen feel truly engaged and well represented. The high number of uncontested offices and low voter turnout are evidence of a deeper crisis in democracy which is making people feel poorly represented and angry.
The election is June 3rd and the best way for you to ensure that nothing stops you from voting is to register to vote by mail.
Vote for me and I'll clean up this office and make it work for you.

California’s Open Primaries Act which took effect January 1, 2011, greatly reduced barriers to third party candidacy in California by redefining various “partisan” and “non-partisan” offices as “voter-nominated”. Most statewide and countywide offices are now voter-nominated, while national (basically just President/Vice President) and local offices everything city-wide goes by city rules, (check with your local clerk).
These recent changes and others continue to complicate an already perplexing mechanism for selecting our society’s most important leaders, while piecemeal efforts at political reform over the past several decades have created a patchwork of rules that in itself is a barrier to smaller candidates.
It is the job of the county clerk to maintain the systems by which county voters register and cast their votes, and by which Ventura candidates run for election, as well as many other important civic functions.
We need a hard working and energetic clerk like me to ensure that Ventura is well represented by ensuring that every candidate gets a fair opportunity to present their case to the voters, that the voters have many resources for researching candidates and referenda, and that every vote is fairly cast and counted.
We’re asking for your vote, not for donations.
