Frequently Asked Questions: Q. What party are you affiliated with? A. First, I should note that the City of Concord runs its local government as nonpartisan. Candidates run without association to political parties. This allows us to focus on the community's needs rather than a party's agenda. Regardless, I am registered as Independent and always have been. I have voted for people associated with a variety of political parties. I like to think I vote for human beings, not parties. This is by far the number one question I get. It doesn't surprise me, the narrative in the media is always Republicans vs. Democrats. We as humans instinctively want to group people into a category. It's easier for us group and apply assumptions rather than fully analyze each person we come in contact with. This is also how we develop prejudice and stereotypes, which is why we must be more vigilante in our efforts to understanding our fellow community members.
Q. When is the elections? A. November 7, 2017. Make sure you have registered to vote and, if you have moved, that your registration is updated. Check out our How To Vote page for more information.
