2018 Nov General Election eNews

posted Nov 9, 2018, 9:22 AM by Douglas County Democrats

Hello, NCW Democrats and Friends,  

You have rallied for great candidates and issues, attended caucuses and conventions, picnics and dinners, stepped up to walk hundreds of miles, talk with thousands of voters, spent endless hours making phone calls, written hundreds of new-voter thank you’s, and always kept the mood positive and forward-thinking.  We can’t thank you enough.  We all wish our candidates success as they near this next hurdle.  We'll be right there with them as they cross the finish line.


Tuesday, 11/6:  Canvass or Phonebank -- Call William ((253-363-5075) or Myra and Carmen ((206-491-3024).  Need info?  Call Dem HQ (509-436-8899).

Tuesday, 11/6:  ELECTION NIGHT WATCH PARTIESWenatchee Area (Rhubarb Mkt, 11/6, 5:30-9p, potluck); Leavenworth Area (Gustav’s, 5:30-9:30p, no-host)

Wednesday, 11/7:  Take a breath, take a walk, be with friends and family.  No General Meeting of local Democrats in November—we’ll reconvene in December with reorganization meetings (election of leadership), winter gathering, and planning for 2019 and 2020.  The beat will go on.

Lots of PCOs and volunteers are now “pros” using new tools and know the drill about being on the inside of campaign organizing.  Even if you were only able to be involved in spirit and word, we appreciate you.  We hope you feel a sense of pride in our collective accomplishments.  Thank you all for taking that extra step to help right this political ship.

And just in case your ballot is still sitting on the kitchen counter, please make sure to put it in a ballot drop box by 8p Tuesday.  Your vote matters!

Our office hours will adjust after the election.  Please stop by Dem HQ M-F 10a-2p (thru 11/15), for coffee or a chat, to say “thanks” to our staff and volunteers, or consider making a donation.  We’ll resume 10a coffees at Pybus on Nov 20 (1st and 3rd Tues ea mo).

Please consider joining us for an election night gathering or an upcoming event.  We value you, your ideas, and your friendship as fellow Democrats.
