Endorsement Process

EBWPA Election Endorsements


The East Bay Women's Political Alliance (EBWPA) endorses candidates and ballot measures on our bottom line issues and supports endorsed campaigns with volunteer activities and financially. We are grateful to our donors whose support gives us the tools 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, please click here to be directed to our online questionnaire.

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 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.
