RETURN TO IN-PERSON FOR JUNE CCDP MEETING
We are thrilled to announce that we will be returning to the Council Chambers at North Charleston City Hall for our first in-person county meeting in over a year next Thursday (6/17) at 6:30 PM. CCDP has not had an in-person county meeting since early 2020. With many Charleston Democrats vaccinated and ready to get back to seeing one another, we felt that it was time to return to in-person meetings. For those who have not been vaccinated or do not feel comfortable meeting in-person, we will have a hybrid option so you can still attend the meeting via Zoom.
During this meeting, we will focus on voter registration discussions. As stated in past newsletters, we are embarking on a multi-faceted campaign to register and connect with voters across the county in preparation for 2022. We will also hear from our committees, area clubs, and a special guest speaker. You can RSVP for the event through the button below. We look forward to seeing many of you in person!
We are getting busy reaching out to Democrats across the county by door knocking, calling, and by mail. Want to help out but don’t have time to volunteer? Donate some stamps! We need first class stamps for letters and lots of postcard stamps for our Postcards to Voters campaign!
The office is open each Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. If these times do not work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements to drop off the stamps.
All meetings until further notice will be conducted “virtually” using Zoom. You can connect by computer or telephone. We will continue to use MobilizeAmerica to RSVP.
