Keep Coronado Elections Nonpartisan
Updated: Sep 19, 2020
Coronado has a longstanding tradition of nonpartisan elections for our nonpartisan offices, and we would like to keep it that way by removing active partisan interference and related advertising for partisan-endorsed candidates.
“Active partisan interference” in this context includes, but is not limited to, in-person solicitations, distribution of door hangers, flyers, leaflets, mailers, robocalls, and any other advertising for partisan-endorsed candidates.
While it may be a constitutional right for organizations to conduct partisan advertising for nonpartisan offices, it is also the constitutional right of citizens to respectfully request that such partisan advertising stop in our town. Coronado’s elected positions for Mayor, City Council and School Board are defined by the California Constitution and County Registrar of Voters as “nonpartisan” offices.
