If you haven’t visited the website in a while, the WCDP’s Precinct Organizing Committee has put together an Election Resources page. You can find useful information on voter registration, where to pick up yard signs, flyers to share on social media, the location of your ballot dropbox, and a bunch of other stuff. It will also be the go-to place to find a digital copy of the famous Voter Guide. Content on this page will be changing constantly over the next forty days, so check back often. Visit the page here.
Voter Guide Progress Report
Many thanks to you, our readers and our members, for your overwhelming response in the face of adversity. This year’s voter guide is fully funded thanks to your generosity, and we are delighted to welcome the flood of volunteers who stand ready to help get it delivered. It’s at the printer now, and our team of Area Captains and other SuperVolunteers are ready to spring into action as soon as we get the word that it’s finished– possibly as soon as the 25th. If you haven’t yet signed up and want to walk a turf or two, get more info and sign up here.
