Letters to the Editor
Is the upcoming election the most important one of our lifetime? It may well be, so let’s all be prepared to work hard during the campaign to elect all Democratic candidates. One of the most important things you can do is to become a precinct delegate. The precinct is where elections are won and lost, and where active precinct delegates can make the difference in the number of wins for Dems. In August we will have a training session for new precinct delegates and show you effective ways to work with your neighbors.
What is a precinct delegate? You represent the party in your neighborhood, where you know – and can become known – by your neighbors, and learn what issues are important to them. You represent your neighborhood at Democratic Party meetings.
What do you do as a precinct delegate? Your first task is to identify Democrats in your neighborhood and register them to vote. You take information on issues and candidates to them; keep Democratic leaders informed about the issues that concern voters; and help turn out the Dem vote in elections.
How you become a precinct delegate: Precinct delegates are elected every two years in the August Democratic primary. Only Democratic voters choose Democratic precinct delegates. To get on the ballot, you file a notarized Affidavit of Identity with the clerk of your county, city or township. That’s it. You may pick up the affidavit form from your local county, city or township clerk. The filing deadline is in early May.
The KCDP is here to help – let us know if you need information or assistance. By working together we can deliver Michigan for the Democratic ticket. Don’t sit on the sidelines – become a precinct delegate and be a part of the political solution!
