The California Democratic Party has put up a widget on their website where you can go to pre-register for the caucuses. All you have to do is go to www.cadem.org and look on the right-hand side -- then just fill in the blanks and follow the prompts. You can cut down on the long lines and help out the campaign volunteers who are staging these events by taking this simple step ahead of time. The deadline for pre-registration is Thursday, April 10th at 12:00 Noon.

You can only vote in one caucus and you MUST vote in the Congressional district where you are registered as a Democrat. Please plan to get to your caucus early so you have plenty of time to park and sign in. You must be in line by 3:00 p.m. in order to receive a ballot. WHY SHOULD YOU VOTE FOR LONDON BREEDI have been a supporter of Senator Obama since 2004 when he ran for the United States Senate in the State of Illinois. In February 2007, I attended his candidacy announcement for President of the United States in Springfield, IL with 17,000 supporters in ten degree weather! It truly was an amazing experience.
I have donated to the campaign, campaigned locally and encouraged others to support his candidacy. I have been inspired by Senator Obama's consistent message of hope centered around change in this Country. I truly believe that if Senator Obama is elected President, he will inspire Americans to play a major role in making this county a better place for all Americans.

Currently, I serve as the Executive Director of the African American Art & Culture Complex in San Francisco’s Western Addition community. I also serve as the Vice-President for the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Commission and as a Delegate for the California State Democratic Central Committee.
