CCDP Newsletter: Don’t Miss Tomorrow’s Meeting

11 mins read


While we are not knocking on doors this year, we are hanging door hangers on them…over 60,000 of them, to be precise! That means we are going to need a LOT of help! Recognizing how important this election is and how amazing our candidates are, we have a door hanger for every Democratic home in the county. I know that it is hard to imagine so many door hangers, but it just goes to show how many likely Democratic voters are out there in Charleston County! However, without helping hands from our wonderful volunteers, there is no way we will be able to put out all of the door hangers. We’ll all wear masks and gloves, and there will be no knocking of course. If this all excites you, you can sign up for to help put out door hangers and more on our new all-in-one 2020 volunteering form.

While we have used door hangers in the past, this year they will be more important than ever as a way to let Democrats know the Democratic candidates for whom they can vote and ways to find out more information about those candidates. We are so excited about our slate in Charleston County this year that we want to make sure we inform every likely Democratic voter in the county, but we also want to do that in a COVID-safe manner.

You can find out how you can get involved with building kits and hitting the streets to put out door hangers at this month’s CCDP meeting, which will be this Thursday (9/17) at 6:30 PM on Zoom! You can RSVP through the button below or in our events section. We will also discuss our 2020 Virtual Blue Jamboree, which, as a reminder of last week, will be October 8th at 7 PM! Also, be on the look-out for a door hanger coming to a door handle near you in the coming weeks!


The last week’s question was:

 “An EGOT is someone who has won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony…which two of these awards have been won by participants in the 2020 Blue Jamboree?” 

The correct answers were Emmys and Grammys. Thank you to everyone who submitted an answer. This week’s winner is Alysia Arvanitis

Alysia, please reply to this newsletter to claim your prize!

This week’s question is: 

What do you plan to be doing at 7pm on Thursday October 8th? (There is a correct answer to this!)

Submit your answer HERE and check back next week to see if you’ve won!
