We need for Committee Persons:

We need both candidates by February 13th and will help circulate petitions & provide information, support and training (not much needed right now).
Our mission is to assist in getting Democrats elected to office at every level. How
does that happen?
Before the Primary Election:
-Attend Area 4 meetings where you can meet candidates, learn about current topics
and strategies, and vote on questions as they arise.
– Canvass the homes in your precinct and circulate petitions for candidates within
the area of your voting precinct. Some offices (such as School Board Director)
require only 10 signatures in order for the candidate’s name to appear on the ballot.
Other offices (such as State Representative) require 300 signatures. Committee
people help circulate these petitions in order to ensure that candidates have enough
signatures for their names to appear on the ballot.
-Attend the endorsement meeting for candidates who will be on the ballot at your
voting precinct. This year, that meeting will occur on February 15th. A committee
person can vote to endorse a candidate in their district for State Representative and
for State Senator. If you are unable to attend, you must find a proxy to vote in your
place. A proxy must reside in your voting precinct and be a registered Democrat.

anything else they might need. This phase targets only registered Democrats and
