Do Your Part!
Watch Polls/ Wave Signs / Call Democrats

This is a chance to take a special part in the democratic process.

Watch Polls Pollwatchers are needed during the early voting period that starts Tuesday Oct 21st- through Saturday Nov 1st and again on Election Day, Nov 4th.  You will observe the process at the polling stations,  keep watch that all is going well and that no one is being prevented from exercising his/her right to vote.These are volunteer, non-paid positions. A short training session will be available to all volunteers beforehand. Contact Sue Azia at 352-350-6184.

Wave Signs for Democratic candidates and Democratic policies at all voting locations starting with Early Voting on Oct 21st  through Nov. 4th. Contact Sue Azia at 352-350-6184.

Make Calls to registered voters (Democrats and Independents) and encourage them to vote for our candidates. Calls can be made in the privacy and convenience of your own home or as part of a “group “effort.  This is an organized volunteer effort for which you would be trained and given a prepared script. Contact Tom Edwards at tledwards5@comcast.net.

A KAFFEE KLATSCH is “a casual gathering of people, especially for refreshments and informal conversation”. The Villages Democratic Club has just introduced this concept so that newcomers (and oldtimers) can get to know their Democratic neighors. These are scheduled in the next few weeks.
