NOVEMBER 6th GENERAL ELECTION
ELECTION, ELECTION, ELECTION…. Have I mentioned that there is an election soon!
For those of you who missed the last meeting, I stressed the importance of supporting all of our candidates on the November ballot. The candidate you supported in the Primary may not have won, but at the end the day, we all need to be a cohesive team and work together to elect Republicans.
Will Stanton made a wise statement in the Ladies’ Home Journal, dated Nov. 1962, he said, “Republicans sleep in twin beds-some even in separate rooms. That is why there are more Democrats.” If we have learned anything from the last Presidential election, it’s that elections are decided by those who show up to vote. It is not only up to us to vote, but also actively work with the Republican candidates in getting their constituents out to vote as well.
We are planning a few Election Day volunteer drives at the Mantel Coffee Shoppe, located at 15 Tech Pkwy #101, Stafford. The dates and times are TBA. However, we will be scheduling dates for the weeks of October 1st and the 15th. Others dates may be added as well. Stay tuned.
Training dates and times for inside poll watchers and outside volunteers have been scheduled. The location will be at the Porter Library, located at 2001 Parkway Blvd, Stafford. You will be able to sign up for a specific date and time on the website in the next couple of days. Also, please mention the training sessions to your friends and try and bring at least one person with you. It is a great way to outreach to the community and for them to learn about elections, volunteering and to learn about our Committee. RSVP is encouraged for proper head count. The Porter Library rooms have maximum occupancy requirements, so it is important to have a good estimate of how many people will be attending each training session. The dates and times are as follows:
- September 11th 1-5pm (Tuesday)
- September 15th 2-5pm (Saturday)
- September 22nd 10-1pm (Saturday)
- September 27th 6-9pm (Thursday)
- October 10th 1-5pm (Wednesday)
- October 25th 6-9pm (Thursday)
- October 27th 1-5pm (Saturday)
MAGISTERIAL CHAIRS NEEDED
We are still need volunteers for many of the districts. This is an important role and a vital part of the Election Day process. If anyone has interest, please contact me. We still need Magisterial Chairs for: Rock Hill, Hartwood, Garrisonville and Griffis-Widewater.
