2020 ELECTIONS

Jump to city-by-city guide.

VOTE
Change comes from voting. More than 40% of all households on the Peninsula have dogs. We are a large voting block that can determine who wins an election.

LEARN
Knowledge is power. Your city, county, and state elected officials decide where in our communities dogs are allowed and are not allowed on leash and off-leash. But rarely do we know their thoughts on dog owners’ concerns. We have sent 2020 candidates questionnaires specifically designed for their district.  They are NOW posted below.  Note which candidates support dog access and which don’t.  Your absentee ballot will be mailed to you on October 5th.

Candidate Questionnaires

 Denotes the MOST favorable dog access candidates based on information available to us. 

Winners are in BOLD andafter their name.

Click on the candidate’s name to see their completed Peninsula Dog PAC Questionnaires.  If there is no link on the candidate’s name, that candidate did not complete the short Questionnaire after receiving three (3) emails from us with the Questionnaire attached.
