Jefferson/Clallam County Group Virtual Phonebank with the Coordinated Campaign!

150 150

Calling with the Coordinated Campaign is the best way to support ALL Democrats running across our state.

We target newly registered voters who did not vote in the Presidential Primary to find more Dems to turn out later in the year as well as “sporadic voting Democrats–” voters who will vote for Democrats up and down their ballot but need a reminder to get their ballots turned in. A ballot returned by these folks is a vote for Democratic candidates from Joe Biden down to our local legislative leaders.

Click HERE to join us Wednesday, June 17th at 5 PM!
Each of our events will start with a step-by-step training led by a Coordinated Campaign Regional Field Director, and we have multiple staff members on each call to assist folks individually as needed. No previous experience necessary!

After our training, join your fellow Jefferson/Clallam County Dems in a "virtual campaign office" breakout room where we can make calls together from the comfort of our living rooms.

If you have questions, please reach out to Diane Jones (360.774.3256) or Evan Koepfler (253.355.2767), Regional Field Director for the South Sound and Peninsula for more details.
We look forward to seeing you next Wednesday!

Canvassing during Covid

150 150

Canvassing - we need to remind Democrats to vote in August and November elections!

To do that, we need to identify Democrats. We can't knock on doors, so our State Committee Representative Diane Jones is organizing phone banks throughout our LD. She can set you up with a call list. Give Diane a call at 360-379-9193.

Jefferson County Democrats vote online to endorse eight candidates for state offices

150 150

For the first time – but probably not for the last time – the Jefferson County Democrats met virtually May 20, 2020 through the wonders of technology to endorse eight candidates for state elected positions.

Using the “chat” function in the Zoom computer app, 40 party members voted from their homes to endorse incumbents Gov. Jay Inslee; Attorney General Bob Ferguson; Hilary Franz, commissioner of public lands; 24th District Sen. Kevin Van de Wege; and 24th District Reps. Steve Tharinger and Mike Chapman. They also endorsed Mike Pellicciotti for state treasurer and Gael Tarleton for secretary of state.

In addition, party members voted to support new state law SB 5395, which requires school districts to provide recurring instruction in human development and reproduction that is age-appropriate and inclusive of all students. And they voted to oppose signing petitions for referendums 90 and 91, which would repeal SB 5395.

STATE DELEGATE ELECTION RESULTS

150 150

"The Washington State Democrats developed an alternative to the conventions we would have held May 3. Our Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) took part in an on-line ballot procedure to elect our Legislative District delegates to the CD caucus and state convention, where our national delegates will be elected."

"The Washington State Democrats Convention will be virtual.  "Folks should plan for the virtual convention to run from 9-5 pm on Saturday, June 13th..." 

Click on link below and scroll down the newsletter to see the list of state delegates for Biden and Sanders who were elected. Fifteen alternates will also be named soon.

GOTV: Help ‘Get Out The Vote’ for presidential primary in Jefferson County

150 150

The presidential primary is coming up, and it is crucial to encourage voters to vote. While many people vote reliably in every election, many people don’t.

If we can get these low-propensity voters to vote in the primary election, they are up to 90% more likely to vote in the general election. One of the best ways to do that is by contacting voters after the ballots are sent, reminding them to mail in their ballot.

While door-knocking is the most effective method,
phone calling is the second most effective.

Are you interested in making phone-calls to low-propensity Democratic-leaning voters?
I’ll supply you with a call list and a short script. Contact me at:

Diane Jones, JCD Elections Chair
dianefrjones@gmail.com
(360) 379-9193

The ballots are mailed Friday, Feb. 21. You can begin making calls starting Saturday. If you can help make calls, let me know, and I’ll email you a call list on Feb. 22.

The ballots are due March 10. I’ll create new call lists of voters who haven’t yet turned in their ballots around March 4.

If you have questions, call or send me an email. Thank you!
