Party Affiliation and IB Politics By the Numbers

The latest data found Democrats to be the largest party in IB and its political districts, but no party claims a majority.

Imperial Beah and its political districts are decidedly Democratic, according to the latest data from the County of San Diego Registrar of Voters and Imperial County Registrar of Voters.

The data also found voters who declined to state their political affiliation high.

The contrast was even more stark in the City of San Diego, where Democrats were found to be 40.3 percent of registered voters and Republicans 28.2 percent of voters.

A look at Imperial Beach's stance on the state level paints a similar picture.

In each district, the American Independent Party had the third highest amount of registered members.

The City of Imperial Beach is currently part of California's 53rd District which is represented by Congresswoman Susan Davis.

Following political district lines being redrawn by the California Citizens Redistricting Committee and 2012 elections, IB will become part of California's 51st District.

State Senator Juan Vargas, Denise Moreno-Ducheny and five other candidates will face-off in a June 5 primary to earn the right to represent the district which will span the entirety of the California-Mexico border.

San Diego County Registrar of Voters data was reported at the end of April and Imperial County Regisrar of Voters data May 16.

Political parties below the six largest parties were included in the declined to state category in Imperial County.

Missing from this report is the also important County Supervisor race, IB is in District 1 were Greg Cox, a republican, has held the seat as a conservative for 16 years. This June, Imperial Beach and the South Bay should be voting for Brant Will (www.brantwill.com) for County Supervisor. Brant is supportive of safe access to medical marijuana (dispensaries) where people live. Greg Cox, on the other hand, is supported by law enforcement and he did what he could to keep patients away from their doctor recommended medicine in the entire county. A vote for Brant Will in June is a vote for countywide safe access.

I personally am a decline to state, At this time in my estimation both of the existing partys are totally disfunctional. Libi, If you are going to appear before the council you need to remember to speak into the mike, I could not understand one word of what you said last night and I was in the front row. If you are going to raise an issue, Raise it loud and clear where everyone can hear it !
