Have you given up on politicians? So have we.  That’s why we are voting 1-2-3 to replace Ed Lee in the SF mayor’s race on November 3rd.

If you didn’t plan on voting this year because “What’s the point?” join our coalition of neighborhood activists and pissed-off voters who are ready to say Good-Bye to Ed Lee.

Election Day is November 3 — Did you know that only 1/3 or registered voters actually vote?  What if the other 2/3 came out to Vote NO on Ed Lee.  We are using Ranked Choice Voting to support three non-politician candidates:  Stuart Schuffman, Francisco Herrera, and Amy Weiss. Our group grows every day, join our coalition on Facebook:

In this year’s San Francisco 2015 mayoral race, the citizens of this great city can oust the gatekeeper who has allowed corporate interests to radically change our urban landscape and lifestyle. By voting for Amy Farah Weiss, Francisco Herrera, and Stuart Schuffman, San Franciscans can elect a leader with a vested interest in creating community-oriented policy and change. This November, Vote 1-2-3 to REPLACE ED LEE!

In SF we have ranked choice voting, which kicks in if no candidate receives more than 50% of the first choice votes. With ranked choice voting, you can choose three candidates for Mayor on the ballot. After the first round, the lowest scoring candidate is out and their 2nd place votes are redistributed to the remaining candidates. In 2011, it went 12 rounds before Ed Lee received the majority. This way, smaller campaigns can align to work with each other and against an incumbent like Lee.

Bike the Vote at the NOW! Festival

Thursday, Oct. 29, 5-6:30 p.m.
William McKinley Statue, Panhandle (Baker/Fell)bike

On your evening commute, stop by our event in the Panhandle and ask some of the mayoral candidates about how they plan to make San Francisco streets safer. Ed Lee has said he will veto the Bike Yield Law (otherwise known as the Idaho Stop), but how do the other mayoral candidates feel? With the recent fatality and injuries, what are the candidates’ plans for Vision Zero, better bike laws and better bike infrastructure?

Here’s a chance to get your answers from our people-powered candidates before Election Day!

Confirmed attendance: Amy Farah Weiss, Reed Martin
TBD: Stuart Schuffman

Morgan Fitzgibbons of The Wigg Party will moderate questions.

Also you will be able to pick up a copy of the SF League of Pissed-Off Voters 2015 Voter Guide!
We’ll have some hot chai tea and pastries for those who come early!

The 2015 SF Mayoral Election has had the fewest number of public forums and debates of any mayoral race in 45 years. Vote 1-2-3 to Replace Ed Lee is hosting screenings of the Oct. 8 League of Women Voters SF Mayoral Forum . We are looking into providing volunteer translators. Please contact one of the hosts if you are in need of ASL interpretation.

Doors open at 6pm for connecting with neighbors and the screening will begin at 6:30pm with a discussion to follow.

May the odds be in your favor

imageIn our last mayoral election, the number of registered voters was about 465,000.  The voter turnout was 43%, meaning 197,000 ballots were cast.  Ed Lee won the election after 12 rounds of ranked choice voting, with 80,000 votes.  Imagine if all those registered voters who didn’t vote had come out to vote for one of the other candidates.

Every vote counts!  1 out of 4 registered voters voted for Ed Lee in our last election.  What if this year, the other 3 voters (including yourself) voted for anyone but Ed Lee.

Using Ranked Choice Voting, we have a chance.  We have three candidates who stand for the true values of San Francisco and want to change the direction that we are going in.  If you are a registered voter, help us stem the tide of corruption in San Francisco!  Use all your votes to Vote 1-2-3 to Replace Ed Lee.
