Novato Stands United PAC
NovatoSUP is the response of local residents to the events unfolding since the November 2016 presidential election and subsequent inauguration of the current president. For us, Novato Stands United as a welcoming community to all who live and work here. And we're fighting to keep it that way.
CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE CIVILITY PLEDGE
I recently started a petition asking candidates for Novato City Council to sign a civility pledge. Frankly, we might not be able to control the political discourse on a national level, but we can and should dictate how our local candidates behave. This year, the City of Novato will have district elections for the first time, and contested elections are expected in the three districts which are up this year. Candidates in Districts 1, 3 and 5 are running to secure five-year terms on the City Council.
RAISE YOUR VOICE - VOTE
The card itself says it best: I've been writing people around the country for 2 years. Why not start postcarding to non-voters in Novato?
NOVATO VOTES UNITED
Want to change the world? Start with your community and build from there. Get registered. Get informed. Get out there and vote.
WHY LAWN SIGNS?
Novato Votes United. What does that even mean? It doesn't tell anyone anything. Novato Votes United. We are Novato. We vote. We are united. Hey, did you know there's an election coming up? Ask me more!

LEGAL OBSERVER TRAINING MARCH 8, 2018

HIGH SCHOOL PRE-REGISTRATION
Did you know 16- and 17-year-old Californians can pre-register to vote and their registration will become active on their 18th birthday? The level of enthusiasm displayed by these students when they register to vote is a delight to see.
The initial post card was sent to Novato residents who voted in the November 2017 local election.
MARIN RAPID RESPONSE NETWORK
The Marin Rapid Response Network runs a 24 hour HOTLINE system -- 415.991.4545 -- which was created to expand the community’s ability to monitor and document ICE operations in real time and to support the process of gathering evidence used to free someone from ICE custody. This is part of a larger educational series, Know Your Rights.
MORE COMING SOON
We want to encourage local residents to register to vote, to be informed, and to vote. Heroes vote.
