    Nov. 8th Is Coming, Butte County HQs Are Focusing On Local Races

    Nov. 8th Is Coming, Butte County HQs Are Focusing On Local Races

    That Nov. 8th Election Day is creeping up, just 13 days away, and local Democratic and Republican Headquarters are working hard. 

    While the national election has been very exciting thus far, both Chico offices are spending most of their energy on local races.

    The Chico Democratic Elections Headquarters is located at 287 Rio Lindo Ave in Chico.

    Democratic Campaign strategist Bob Mulholland says, now that the third debate is over, they are seeing a big input of volunteers. He also thinks this year the race is closer than ever in terms of registered voters.

    "Years ago we were 7,000 behind, last week we were only about 800 behind the republicans, and again I think we may be dead even or almost dead even on Monday or Tuesday. That's the key, and we did a darn good job on that.”

    He said from simple lawn signs to tedious mailings, they’re doing everything they can to constantly let Democrats and Independents know they need them to vote come election day.

    The Chico Republican Headquarters is located at 1058 Mangrove Ave.

    "We've got thousands of phone calls being made out of this HQ every day, we've already made over 100,000 phone calls in last month," says Saulo Londano, who works for Senator Jim Nielsen but took some time off and is now working part time to staff the Republican operation for the North State Headquarters.

    Just like the opposition, they are doing everything in their power to get the word out.

    "That's what we're doing here every day. Sending folks to go walk door to door, contacting them through email, Facebook, whatever social media site they like to use and just get those ballots in," said Londano.

    Both sides will hold a victory party on the night of November 8th.

    The Republican Victory Party will be at their Chico Headquarters, and the Democratic location will be determined within the next couple of days.
