Learn about the rapid rise and fall of the Know-Nothings, how the Workingmen’s Party helped write the state constitution and elected a mayor, examine just how progressive the Progressive Party was, and meet local members of the Socialist, Greenback Labor, and Prohibition Parties. Saturday, June 9, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. The Sacramento Historic City Cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818.

Election Day Smiles

Election Day Smiles

Sacramento -- Voters may be scarce for Tuesday's election, yet smiles are abundant at the Vietnamese Community Center on Elder Creek Road. Sacramento County Election Officials Jacqueline Alonso, Nina Castro, Colleen DeLa Rosa and Tan Nguyen greet all voters with prompt assistance, helpful information and friendly smiles as conscientious citizens exert our precious right to elect government representatives and decide public issues. When asked to sum up Tuesday's voters, all four election officials say, ''Thank you for voting!" I say, "If you didn't vote Tuesday, don't complain to me later!"

Please call "Tell News10" at 916-321-3232 to voice your questions, comments and profound statements -- they are listening.
