  • Study up on the issues
  • We support a YES on “B” and County issue “1A”
  • Study every candidate. Make sure they’re not a Republican for decades, attending GOP luncheons this summer, but running as an “independent” (oh, hi Bruce Butler!). A D next to their name ensures they’ll live up to YOUR values.
  • Don’t forget the judges, for the courts are one of our biggest challenges as Democrats. Click here for judicial review resources.

volunteer to be a poll worker for the county

Election Judges (interchangeably called Pollworkers) provide assistance to the County Clerk and Elections staff in order to properly conduct elections.  Election judges are compensated for their time as temporary County staff.

It’s more important than ever this year. Typically poll workers skew older. Let’s let the hard working retirees who have dedicated themselves to poll work take a break this year.
