Club endorsements are voted on by members of San Diego Democrats for Equality. They do not equal endorsements made by the local San Diego County Democratic Party or the California Democratic Party -- county and state party endorsements are made separately.

Qualified” ratings may be given to candidates who do not meet at least a 60% threshold of voting club members, however are deemed supportable by the club.

Unacceptable” ratings may be given in the event that the candidate has a poor position or record on one or more critical issues, and/or the candidate has demonstrated a lack of responsiveness or sensitivity to the LGBTQ+ community.

"Neutral/No Position" ratings may be given to candidates in the event they fall between the ratings of "Qualified" or "Unacceptable" and can be given to ballot measures in the event the club opts to not take a position either way on an issue.

Candidates and elected officials seeking an endorsement from our club are expected to have and/or develop informed policies on intersectional LGBTQ+, racial, and gender equality issues. You may find more resources on our website here.
