WHEN: September 16th, 2020, 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. We will open up the meeting at 5:30pm for anyone who wants to join early in order to test out the meeting software, or to attend the Environmental Caucus Meeting, which will be in a breakout room.

Environmental Caucus is at 5:30pm.  Join the meeting, and you will be routed to a breakout room if you wish to attend the Environmental Caucus meeting.

WHERE: Online, using Zoom! Registration is required, please do so here. Once you register you will receive the information to join the meeting as the meeting date approaches.

ACCESSIBILITY: Please reply to this email or contact chair@46dems.org if you need any accessibility accommodations, or any assistance joining or participating in an online meeting. Voting will be much easier on a personal computer or tablet than it is over the phone. If you plan to join the meeting by phone please let us know so we can assist you in ensuring you are able to vote.

Eligibility to vote: In order to be eligible to vote new members must have joined 21 days in advance of the meeting. If you were a member in good standing of the 46th District Dems in 2019, you have until the beginning of the meeting to renew your membership and be eligible but we STRONGLY recommend renewing as early as possible to ensure you are eligible to vote and to ease the burden on our credentials and tally committee. Sign up to join the 46th District Democrats here.

Voting: Each eligible voter will be sent a Voter ID that they will use to vote during the meeting. Expect to receive your code a day or so before the meeting, along with more information about the voting process. Please let us know if you have any questions about the process before the meeting. We expect a large number of our members to attend this meeting and it will help things go much more smoothly if we are able to help you out with questions or technical difficulties before the meeting begins. Please send an email to tally46@46dems.org if you have questions about the voting process.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions about the endorsements meeting or otherwise and I look forward to "seeing" you on the 15th.  You can reach me at chair@46dems.org

Look out for further emails and posts this week from us regarding opportunities to phone bank with the coordinated campaign, support our targeted sister district, the 28th LD of Pierce County (Elect T’wina Nobles!), support Kim Schrier in the 8th CD, and get a Biden-Harris yard sign!  You can sign up for volunteer opportunities here!

 

Biden-Harris Yard Signs!

Yes, we know that you are excited and anxious to get your yard signs for the next President and Vice President, as well as all of our other candidates on the ballot!

We will have a large scale distribution within the next few days, and you can sign up for a yard sign here.
