What is 209 Politics?

We are a fully student-run, independent news organization. Everything from our articles down to our website source code is produced by students. We aim to provide detailed, acccessible, and unbiased coverage of political events in the 209, especially since traditional news organizations have struggled in recent years.

What do you write about?

We specialize in politics in the San Joaquin area. Whether it's local candidates, ballot measures, school board meetings, mayoral policies, or city council decisions, we've got you covered. All of our articles are original and scrupulously fact-checked.

What sets you apart from other local news organizations?

All of our articles are completely free. No ads, no paywalls, ever. We also provide unique and exclusive information, such as our campaign finance tracker, which is the only project of its kind in the Central Valley.
