It Just Takes Two Minutes to Vote

It only takes a few minutes to vote on the CRC Major Amendment.

CDFA just sent a second round of ballots to those who had not yet voted. Grab the envelope off the top of the pile, fill it out and drop it in the mailbox.

If you have not received a ballot, contact Kacie Fritz at CDFA (916) 900-5095 or Kacie.fritz@cdfa.ca.gov
