Bernie Sanders will return to California on Monday for a campaign rally in Richmond, two weeks before Super Tuesday.

The get out the early vote rally will kick off from 12pm on Monday at the Craneway Pavilion at Ford Point in Richmond. Campaign staff will be on hand at the rally to collect vote-by-mail ballots and turn them in to county registrars.

Sanders’ campaign is working hard to turn out the vote in California, making an unparalleled effort to engage the more than five million no party preference voters in California.

“Our campaign is doing everything we can to educate voters about the easiest ways to cast their ballots for president,” said Sanders’ California state director Rafael Návar.

“No Party Preference and independent voters deserve every opportunity to participate in the democratic process, and that’s why we have been on the ground since day one educating Californians about the ins and outs of voting.”

Polling released last week shows Sanders with a 13 point lead in the Golden State. According to FiveThirtyEight’s Democratic primary forecast, Sanders has a 64 percent chance of winning the most votes in the state.
