CrashPad Voter Guide 2016

CrashPad’s 2016 Election Voter Guide


UPDATED November 9th: Thanks to an incredible worker-led grassroots campaign, Prop 60 has been defeated. There is much, much more work to be done. Thank you to all who support us.

Porn Gets Political! We’ve released our first Voter Guide for the California General Election on Tuesday November 8th, 2016. Thanks to the San Francisco Chronicle and The League of Pissed Off Voters SF for their own voter guide information.

How to Vote:

Register to vote in California at RegisterToVote.ca.gov. (The deadline to register is Oct 24th, so do it now!) Early voting starts October 11th at San Francisco City Hall. Visit SFelections.org or call 311 for more info. On Tuesday November 8th, the polls will open at 7am and close at 8pm. Find your polling place. Read the full voter ballot here.

CrashPad specifically urges you to vote NO on Prop 60, which limits our safer sex options, threatens our privacy and exposes us to anti-LGBTQ harassment. Learn more about how you can help the adult film industry defeat Prop 60. #NoProp60
