The Kern County Democratic Party and the California Democratic Party endorse candidates for local and statewide office who demonstrate exceptional drive and dedication to public service. Endorsed candidates have applied for endorsement and participated in a process which resulted in at least two-thirds of participating Central Committee members voting to endorse. Electing our endorsed candidates is our primary goal each election cycle and as such, these candidates receive support from the party in the form of volunteers, time and other resources.

These are our endorsements for the 2020 General Election.
