November 2018 Endorsements
On September 13, 2018 close to 100 club members cast votes on Rent Board, School Board, City Council and Mayoral across Alameda County, as well as the Assembly District 15 race. In order to secure the endorsement of the club, a candidate needed to receive support from at least 60% of the votes cast in that race. A designation of "No Endorsement" means that no candidate in the race reached the 60% threshold or that the club's membership chose the "No Endorsement" option over endorsement of any candidate. Below are the results for all races. (The club only releases the results and not individual vote counts.)
