Over the past three months, over 500 SEIU 721 members fanned out across California and the country, urging people to re-elect President Obama, vote yes on Prop 30, vote no on Prop 32 and elect candidates across our region who support workers.
You made thousands of phone calls, talked to thousands of voters personally, rode buses to Nevada and engaged voters in Colorado. And on election day, your work paid off!
BY THE NUMBERS
President Obama won
Senator Feinstein won
We won a super majority in both the State Assembly and Senate.

We won 14 of the 17 Congressional Seats we endorsed
We won all 6 of the State Senate Seats we endorsed
We won 19 of the 24 (possibly a 20th but it’s too close to call at this point)
