CCDP PRECINCT REORGANIZATION 2022

As we mentioned at last Thursday’s meeting, next month, we will have our biannual precinct reorganization. It will occur virtually Zoom on Saturday, March 26th, in conjunction with our county convention. During this event, precinct leadership for each precinct in the county will be elected, and precinct leadership is vital for organizing successfully for the 2022 elections. Please fill out the survey below to sign up for precinct positions and to indicate interest in the contactless county convention.

CCDP EDUCATION AND TRAINING SERIES

CCDP is excited to announce our third monthly Education & Training class of 2022- Tools of the Trade: Votebuilder, Mobilize & Minivan!

Attendees will learn how to use these tools to find Democrats, invite them to events and talk to voters where they are!

Due to COVID restrictions, space is limited, so sign up for this class today (PLEASE do not sign up if you don’t intend to come.) Masks and vaccines are required. Stay tuned for additional classes in the near future!

THE COURAGE TO RUN & THE WILL TO SERVE

I am sure that as you read these words, an individual or individuals in your life pop into your mind. Whether that’s you, a loved one, your neighbor, or even your mail carrier, we want them to run! CCDP is ready and willing to introduce Charleston and South Carolina to a new group of Democratic leaders.

As you all know, we have elections in November at all levels of government, and filing for all partisan offices is between noon on March 15 and noon on March 30. Our communities need strong leaders who embody the values of the Democratic Party and are willing to fight for what is right. We recognize that it is a daunting prospect to put yourself forward for office, but we know that the Charleston Democratic community is filled with strong leaders who can create positive change in elected office. Furthermore, CCDP is filled with people eager to support these strong leaders’ runs!

If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please take time to consider running for office. The South Carolina Democratic Party has put out a form for individuals to express interest in running. Electoral success will require carefully laid out plans, which in turn require time. In addition to the SCDP information that you can access through the button below, here are more resources for women considering a run for office:

COULD YOU SPARE SOME STAMPS?

Charleston, SC 29413


While our priority right now is collecting the stamps, if you have neat, legible handwriting and want to get supplies and write postcards from home, you can contact office@charlestondemocrats.com to find out more information.
