Help Sort Surrogate ​Affidavit ​Forms!

I mentioned this in the meeting tonight and here's more info from Jaxon Ravens, Chair of the Washington State Democrats.

I'm writing today to ask for your help. This year we are receiving a very high volume of ​Surrogate ​Affidavit ​Forms. It is taking ​the staff a good portion of the day just to open the letters and sort the forms. We need your help. If you or anyone in your local party organization has time during the day or early evening to come to our offices in Pioneer Square and help us process forms we would greatly appreciate it. We could use this type of help for the next few days and need it to make sure that we get the forms delivered to the right location on time.

Our offices are located at 615 ​- ​2nd Ave. Suite 580 in Seattle Washington​ right near Pioneer Square.​ Please reach out to members of your local party organization to see if they have some time to lend a hand.

Given the difficulty and expense of parking in downtown Seattle, we strongly recommend the use of public transportation​ or carpooling.​

​Even a few hours will make a huge difference.

Our office is open from 9am to 7pm. Let me know if you can make it.
