Mindy Romero, Director of the CRC's California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP), was cited as a primary source in the Sacramento Bee's front-page article, "California's Record-Low Voter Turnout Stirs Anxiety."

On December 1, Mindy Romero, Director of the CRC's California Civic Engagement Project (CCEP), was cited as a primary source in the Sacramento Bee's front-page article, "California's Record-Low Voter Turnout Stirs Anxiety." The article reported that "so-called 'low-information, low excitement' elections disproportionally affect Democratic constituencies - single women, young people, people of color and lower-income groups." These constituencies, Romero noted, "are growing, and as they become a larger proportion of the electorate, if they don't get the support they need, or the system doesn't adjust, it looks like it could have an impact on turnout rates. The electoral system will have to figure out better ways of mobilizing and engaging...folks by pulling them into the electorate." To read the full article, click here.
