Endorsement Process

EBWPA Election Endorsements

The East Bay Women's Political Alliance (EBWPA) endorses candidates and ballot measures who support and adhere to our bottom line issues. We support endorsed campaigns with volunteer activities as well as financially. We are grateful to our donorswhose support gives us the tools and resources to fulfill our mission.

Candidates must meet a 60% threshold of present voting members to receive the EBWPA endorsement. In order to be considered for endorsement, a candidate must fill out our EBWPA Candidate Questionnaire. If you are a candidate seeking endorsement for the 2020 Primary Election, please complete the questionnaire found here.

Thank you to all of the candidates that present at our Endorsement Meetings and to our members that attend and vote. 

Support for Endorsed Candidates

Endorsed candidates will receive support from EBWPA to help them get elected. The Board determines levels and types of support based on a number of variables such as the number of women on the elected body, number of women in the race, competitiveness of the race, etc. Support of endorsed candidates may include the following: 

  • Use of name and logo on campaign & promotional items
  • Inclusion in EBWPA election materials
  • Inclusion in EBWPA slate cards
  • Financial contributions
  • Sponsored canvassing, phone-banking & GOTV

Thank you for participating in our Endorsement Process.
