CSEA Members vote to make a difference

Election Day

CSEA members have a proud tradition of making a difference in elections. From local school board races to state and federal elections, we know that voting for pro-education, pro-labor candidates and issues can have a direct impact on our jobs, families and communities.

How CSEA's endorsement process works

Candidates are selected by CSEA’s Political Action for Classified Employees (PACE) Committee for recommendation to the CSEA Board of Directors, with CSEA Board Members making the official endorsement. The PACE recommendations are based on candidates’ voting records, answers to CSEA’s questionnaires and candidate interviews or some combination. Candidates are rated for such recommendation based on issues of importance to CSEA, including school and community college funding, retirement benefit protections, healthcare reform, workers’ rights and other issues impacting CSEA members in their workplace.
