This month's activities:
July is a busy month for your Wilson County Democratic Party. Make plans to join us at one or more of our events. And if you have not visited the headquarters, stop by for a cup of coffee and talk about the Party activities.
July 19, Saturday: We will hold the first of our Early Voting Breakfasts at the Party Headquarters starting at 7 am. When the Election Commission opens, we will walk down the street with our posters urging people to vote. Individuals will enter without their posters to vote and can return to the group to continue our visibility activities. We will need help with food and drink, and with making posters.
July 26, Saturday: The second of our Early Voting Breakfasts will be held at the Charlie Daniels Park at 7 am. When the Community Center opens for voting at 8 am, we will walk over with our posters and show our support for early voting while individual participants go and vote. We will need help with food and drink, and with making posters.
County General and State Primary Election:
If you would like to assist at the polls for the Democratic Party, we are looking for workers. There are four locations during early voting. If you would like to help but cannot work outside, contact the headquarters at 444-3838 and we will find the most appropriate place for you to assist.
Now that the headquarters is officially open, we need people to volunteer to staff it. We plan to have the building open from 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday and from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays. The officers have suggested that people sign up for one shift a week for a month or for the summer or through the fall campaign season. The suggested shifts are for 3 hours: Monday through Friday from 10 am to 1 pm; from 1 pm until 4 pm; from 4 pm until 7 pm and on Saturday from 10 until 2. This gives us 16 shifts a week.
Even if these shifts do not fit your schedule, consider coming in to help us. We need people who can help us make calls to get people to vote early this summer - July 18 through August 2. We need assistance in making new campaign buttons which we will sell in the headquarters and at the Wilson County Fair. Supporting our computer efforts, writing press releases and letters to the editor, coordinating our Facebook and Twitter activities: these are just a few of the things that we are undertaking and can use your help.
If you can commit to working with us in the headquarters, please call Diane Wilde at 615-881-4923 or Marilyn Bryant at 347-448-1039.
Remember, the Republicans are winning because they are out working us. Now is the time to reverse that trend by working together to get Democrats elected.
