Hi, Fellow Democrats–
I’m forwarding an email sent by our DPO CD2 Chair, Nathan Soltz. This year’s convention is supposed to be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but Covid19 may cause it to be electronic instead. You may either vote electronically or by mail if you wish vote for Oregon’s convention delegates, but you have to sign up now to be either a delegate voter or a delegate! Any registered Democrat can be a delegate voter or run to be a delegate to the the national convention. The convention is the week of August 17, 2020.
“I wanted to be sure to highlight to you all that tomorrow, Thursday, May 21st at 5pm PT is the deadline to file to be a candidate for delegate or to vote for the delegates. You can easily find out more information and file at dpo.org/2020; the direct link to the filing form is https://secure.ngpvan.com/gVE9iLiejEaMGRZLEzJ9Og2. Even if you have no interest in being a National Convention delegate, I want to strongly encourage everyone to at least sign up to vote for delegates; at this point, it looks like both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders received enough votes to be awarded delegates. Signing up to be a voter is easy and requires no commitment from you besides filling out your ballot and either dropping it in the mail or submitting it electronically.”
On the 22nd, we hosted interviews with Jerry Allen, candidate for Oregon State Representative District 3 and Mary Middleton, candidate for Oregon State Representative District 4. Here is the recording of that social .
Join us this Wednesday to hear from Dan Mancuso, candidate for Josephine County Commissioner and Jamie McLeod-Skinner, candidate for Secretary of State. You need to pre-register for this event:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Primary is May 19th! Our endorsed candidate for Secretary of State, Jamie McLeod-Skinner, has yard signs available for you to proudly display your pick.
Jamie’s campaign is frugal… if you have yard signs from the 2018 campaign for CD2, there are stickers to change from “Congress” to “Secretary of State”. If you need a brand new sign… that’s ok too!
Just text the type and the number to: 541-660-8155, or email to email@example.com. If possible, do by Saturday April 11.
You have another chance to be an elected Precinct Committee Person… not to be on the ballot, but to be elected as a write-in.
Here is what you do:
- You and at least 2 other voters (the more the merrier) write in your name on the primary election ballot.
- You complete this form: SEL105D
- Bring the completed form to the County Clerk’s office before 8:00 PM on May 19th (primary day).
That’s it! Form SEL105D lets the County Clerk know you will accept the election as a PCP.
More about being a Precinct Committee Person is here.
Filing has now opened for the 2020 Delegate Selection Process. The filing form, as well as extensive educational documents, are available on the DPO website at DPO.org/2020.
We are hoping to have an in-person training opportunity in April — stay tuned for more information.
These are bills that require campaigns to alert the FBI and Federal Election Commission (FEC) about foreign offers of assistance, as well as legislation to provide more election funding and ban voting machines from being connected to the internet. I ask, what is wrong with that?? Read More.
