Here is your #VotaVato cheat sheet for the U.S. Midterm Elections taking place on November 6, 2018.
Prepárense mucha. Su guía de votante#VoteDoña por fin ha regresado con la potencia de las prediciones Mayas del 2012.
Al-muthafuckin- right. The Vota Vato voter guide is back with the vengeance of the 2012 Mayan prediction. And if you thought my ancestors were bullshittin’ when they said the world was coming to an end – you must not be watching the apocalypse unfold before our very eyes.
Ay, ay, ay! This election is reminiscent of the 2016 Presidential race. Liberals all in their feelings because all of the candidates are meh – yet they’re trying desperately to convince you that their horse is the one to place your bet on.
Meanwhile, Lefties in the hood are shrugging their shoulders ‘cause none of these candidates truly embody the progressive values we seek in our leaders.

#HoodDigest Vote Doña Guía de Votante – Asamblea del Estado de CA Elección Super Especial – 3 de Abril, 2018
Ya pasó algún tiempo desde que les trajimos la purititima verdad. Pero honestamente, ha sido un alivio porque al igual que usted, nos empezamos a cansar de tanta pinche elección tan frecuentemente.

Wendy has garnered some notable endorsements from the powerful Service Employees International Union (SEIU), labor icon Dolores Huerta, and the CA Assembly legislative women’s caucus.
More Latinos are running for this Congressional seat than attended Rubi’s Quinceañera. You’d think they were giving away free tamales in the House Of Representatives the way that so many of my gentes jumped in this race. A point on this crowded congressional competition: saying you will stand up to Donald Trump is easy! Calling out his cadre of racist buffoons is a nobrainer. Shit, Fox News and the Koch brothers are standing up to that mamon!
On March 7 get out and vote. Don’t make excuses about you being too busy or feeling like your vote doesn’t matter. Don’t be a pendeja or pendejo… that’s pendejx for people in Boyle Heights. You’re entitled to a 2-hour lunch break. That’s 30 extra minutes than what you already take- no te ahagas. So, go vote, take advantage of your 2-hour break, then walk proudly back into your job- like the descarados that you are, knowing that your “I voted” sticker will give you a pass.
67% of us voted for Clinton, 29% for Trump. Yeah, 1/3 of us went with him. But, why?
