The future of America, more and more, is looking uncertain. Climate change issues are continuing to grow, and legislation in most states outside of California is reversing progress made under the Obama administration.

Social issues in our country continue to concern as well. America is approaching a boiling point — one where it will need to decide on issues including transgender rights, immigration policies and citizenship in general.

This is the time where, instead of going on social media and complaining about what’s wrong, college students absolutely need to make their voices heard through their ballots.

We’ve covered the California 2018 midterm elections and compiled it all in one place for you, ranging from coverage of events promoting civic engagement at Sacramento State to details about both statewide and local propositions and candidates for office.
