46th LD Democrats Delegate Selection Process Voting Period April 26 - May 3!
On Sunday at noon, the Precinct Committee Officers received official notice of the LD Delegate selection process VOTING PERIOD which began at noon on Sunday, April 26, 2020 and continues until 9:00pm on Sunday, May 3, 2020.
This election is the COVID-19 emergency substitute for the LD Caucus which would have been held April 26th. The purpose of this election is to select the delegates from the 46th District, who will represent our district organization at the Washington State Democratic Party Convention this summer, and at the Congressional District (online) Caucuses on May 30th.
Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the difficulty of credentialing participants remotely, and the fact that PCOs are elected representatives of the Democrats in their precinct, and thus have legal standing, only PCOs make up the voting cohort for this election.
Whether a PCO or not, please take the opportunity to meet the candidates running to be the 46th LD delegation to the State convention! We have a very active and talented group of folks here in the 46th! https://wademscaucus2020.azurewebsites.net/candidates/ld46
April 22*, 2020 7:00pm Zoom meeting: Official April Monthly Business MeetingJump the line by pre-registering for your credential using this link to our Credentialing Form.
(Please note, this is a date change for this month. We bumped the April meeting out one more week, as we had inadvertently scheduled it for the last night of Passover. Our apologies to our Jewish community members!)
We will be joined at the beginning of the meeting by candidates for King County Superior Court Justice. Some folks may not know, but due to ethics guidelines they must follow, judges may only come to speak to political organizations when they are active candidates for a judicial seat on the ballot that year. So this is a rare chance to hear from these folks who truly impact so many of our lives every day.
We will have a presentation on running for delegate to the state and/or national convention. We would encourage all of you to consider doing so!
We will have a brief budget update, with how COVID-19 has required us to shift operations, and thus, our budget.
The major item we have on the agenda for voting purposes is discussion and voting on the endorsement rules for 2020, which is continuing business from the February meeting. See Agenda and Zoom Link Below.
With the passage of a vote-by-mail amendment to our Bylaws, we are now authorized to hold "official" online meetings for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. (Thank you, PCOs, for the unanimous vote!)
