Election Judges Needed
If you are a registered Democrat, live in Elbert County, and interested in serving your community, consider becoming an election judge. We are in need of Democratic judges. Election Judges are responsible for collecting and counting ballots during municipal, county, state, and federal elections. You will receive training and compensation and participate as your schedule allows. You will meet judges from opposing parties and work together in assuring that our elections are conducted in a fair and honest manner. You will protect one of America’s most cherished values, “ One Person. One Vote”
If you are interested in becoming an election judge or learning more of what is involved contact Kathleen Conway Chair-Elbert County Democrats (303) 908-0831.
This year the Elbert County Democrats hosted a booth at the Elbert County Fair. It was great meeting the Democrats in our community who visited our booth. Many of the Dems we met were happy to see us there.
Many of the people who stopped by our booth were surprised that there was a Democratic presence at the fair and in Elbert County. It became clear to those of us manning the booth that we must become involved in more community events, make our presence known and make it more comfortable for other Dems to participate. Participation will demonstrate that we will not be intimidated in a majority red county.
At the fair we distributed a variety of literature. We provided potential voters with bar codes that would make it easy for them to register to vote using their cell phones. There was literature regarding the accomplishments of the federal government under the Inflation Reduction Act, the Infrastructure Act, and the Chips Act. There was literature on how this legislation has specifically benefited Colorado. There was information regarding the taxation and water issues that are effecting Elbert County and its citizens. If you are interested in receiving this information contact us at email@example.com.
The biggest lesson we learned from the fair was the need for us to reach out to fellow Democrats and get them involved. In the fall we will be reaching out to Democrats who have recently moved to Elizabeth and the surrounding neighborhoods. We will be providing them with contact information so the they may feel welcome and have a means of contacting us to express theirs views and concerns. We will be planning events at the Elizabeth Library to introduce voters to candidates for various public offices. We will schedule events regarding topics of interest such as solar power and water rights. Information about upcoming events will be posted on our website, elbertcodems.net
It was wonderful meeting those of you who stopped by. Hope to see you at future events.
