Endorsements

The Miracle Mile Democratic Club generally only endorses in races and ballot measures that appear on the ballot in at least a part of the club’s geographic area of interest, as defined in our bylaws. (The Miracle Mile Democratic Club may also make endorsements for offices in the California Democratic Party and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party whose districts meet this requirement.)

The Miracle Mile Democratic Club may initiate endorsement proceedings for races or ballot measures that do not meet this geographic requirement only upon a two-thirds vote of either the Executive Board or of members voting at a duly noticed meeting of the membership.

If you would like to be considered for an endorsement by the Miracle Mile Democratic Club, please contact us here.

You may view past endorsements by the Miracle Mile Democratic Club below. Bolded candidates and propositions signify wins.
