The Sheriff-Coroner and District Attorney races in Orange County are headed to the first runoff in several years after voters turned out in record numbers for the primary election.
The Sheriff and District Attorney are two of the most powerful elected officials in Orange County and California. Yet, most voters don’t pay close attention to the candidates or simply skip the box on the ballot.
Join Resilience Orange County, Freedom for Immigrants, California Families Against Solitary Confinement, OC Civic Engagement Table, Underground Scholars and the ACLU of Southern California to learn more about the role and power of Sheriff-Coroner and DA and analyze the nexus of county law enforcement and some of the most pressing issues facing OC residents:
- Conditions of confinement
- Immigrant Rights
- Prosecutorial misconduct
- Voting rights
You have the power to select, endorse, and vote for a Sheriff and DA candidate that speaks to you and your community’s values.
