What is Politifest?

Politifest is a San Diego public affairs summit produced by Voice of San Diego. The event focuses on the issues and candidates that will dominate the November ballot. We’ll have a full schedule of debates, panels and one-on-one interviews with experts, and provide a platform for residents to raise their voices, ask tough questions and delve into important issues. Politifest serves as a crash course in politics and policy, and provides insights into how our local government works.
