The Central Valley – Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare counties – lags far behind in voter registration and participation. Across California, voter registration averages almost 90% of eligible voters but in parts of the Central Valley, we are 20% behind the statewide average.

The results of this are telling. Those four counties in the Central Valley only range from 70 – 80% of eligible voters registered. 126,000 potential votes could get the Central Valley on par with the rest of California’s average voter registration.

For example, in 2020, CA-21 voter turnout was a record at 170,000 voters. That is almost half of the average participation for California congressional districts.

And in the 2018 and 2020 elections, the Democratic candidate in CA-22 lost by approximately 25,000 votes. This is nearly identical to the margin of Republican versus Democrat voter registration in the district.

We have the ability to determine the outcome of the future elections – today!

For Democratic candidates to win in the 2022 mid-term election, we need to register tens of thousands of voters across Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Kern counties.

VoterPAC will invest in Central Committees, local Democratic groups, and other non-federal groups. And our team will engage with volunteers to perform traditional and non-traditional voter outreach and engagement.

VoterPAC is committed to:

  • Increase Democratic registration in Fresno County to negate the Republican advantage, threatening Devin Nunes.
  • Increase voter registration in Kings County to improve the margin for a Democratic victory.
  • Increase voter registration in Tulare County to bring CA-22 into a toss-up seat.
  • Increase voter registration in Kern County to challenge Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy’s seat in CA-23. McCarthy has benefitted from a gerrymandered safe Republican district since his first election – but population shifts and the lines now being drawn by California’s independent redistricting commission could dramatically change the district’s demographics and make it a true toss-up next year.
