CA ADEM Endorsements January 2021

What is ADEM?

ADEM (Assembly District Election Meetings) are elections held every two years in January, where Democratic voters elect delegates to represent their assembly district in the California Democratic Party. If you are a Democratic Party member in California, register today at ademelections.com.

Delegates choose the party leadership, set the policy platform, and endorse on state and federal elections.

Why should I vote in ADEM?

Voting in the ADEM elections will promote pro-housing voices and policies up and down California.

In order to fix broken incentives and legalize housing, YIMBY is building a movement to elect pro-housing officials, who can promote policies and pass legislation to allow more housing. In ADEM, you have the chance to elect pro-housing delegates, who will in turn endorse pro-housing candidates for office.

How do I vote in ADEM?

To vote, you must be a registered Democrat, and you must request your ballot at ademelections.com by January 11th. This election is run by the California Democratic Party, not the official election department, so you must request a ballot regardless of how you’ve voted in previous elections.

When do I vote in ADEM?

  1. Take one minute now and register for the election at ademelections.com. The deadline to request your ballot is January 11th.
  2. Complete and mail your ballot back in the postage-paid envelope by January 22nd. The party must receive your ballot by January 27th.

What's with all these slates?

A fundamental part of an effective ADEM strategy is to band together with other coalition partners, with each candidate bringing their backers to support the entire slate. In hotly contested ADEM races, a slate strategy is key to success. While we are not able to support slates in all cases, YIMBY pushes to get our members to run on slates and boost an entire slate across the finish line whenever possible.
