Our next LAD Meeting, April 1, will be VIRTUAL!

Due to Coronavirus protocol, our next LAD Meeting for April 1 will not be a public meeting. What hasn’t changed, is that we will be utilizing and preparing all of our available resources to give you a valuable presentation on the 2020 CENSUS.

We’ll have an update on what you can do locally to keep democracy alive during a global pandemic. Though we are physically isolated from each other, we need to do all we can to remain engaged in the political process. As we’ve seen in the performance of our present administration during this crisis, it becomes all the more necessary to ensure the health and safety of our democracy moving forward. We believe Governor Polis is showing true leadership and Colorado is fortunate to have a mail in ballot system. That’s why you’ll need to know what candidates will be on your ballot, and we’ll talk about what bills were in process at the time our state legislators were understandably adjourned and rightfully went home to shelter in place. 

Our state legislators have also been extremely helpful and active in providing valuable coronavirus resources to help us through this crisis as it unfolds, highlighting the network of county and state agencies on the frontlines of this fight. We’ll have a list at the ready to share with all of you.

Stay tuned to this website, there will be a sign-in link for live access to our presentation, perhaps a facebook live event as well. And as always, all materials will be posted on this site after the event, under the resources widget.

You can also sign up for our email blasts — a great source of info about this upcoming meeting and action items — by sending us an email at longmontareadems@gmail.com with “Sign Me Up!” in the subject line.

BE SAFE! Take all necessary precautions to ensure containment and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We will get through this — albeit at a safe social distance, but — TOGETHER.

THANK YOU!

2020 Colorado Caucus Results by County!

THANKS for attending the 2020 Caucus! Considering that our Caucus structure changed this year because we had the Presidential Primary last Tuesday, with our Caucus basing its delegate allocation on the US Senate candidate preference poll, caucuses in Boulder County ran quite smoothly! Several trainings prior to caucus were offered by the Boulder County Democratic Party — and if you noticed, Boulder County Dems and their rockstar volunteers provided some of the earliest result figures to the state. Longmont Area Democrats were happy to provide as much caucus and candidate info as we could leading up to this important opportunity for democracy. As long as we have it, we should use it — and many of you did — THANK YOU to EVERYONE who stepped up to be or return as Precinct Leaders and those that stepped up to be Delegates to Boulder County Assembly on Saturday, March 28!

2020 COLORADO CAUCUS RESULTS BY COUNTY, HERE.

THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING IN OUR DEMOCRACY!

Caucus 101: Laying the Grassroots Groundwork for 2020 

Wednesday, February 5 • 6:30pm (meeting starts promptly at 6:45!)  Front Range Community College   Community Room

There’s a reason why LAD’s Caucus 101 is always so well attended: As area coordinators, precinct leaders, and supersite chairs — having attended meetings for weeks — we are your trusted source for all things having to do with the upcoming caucus on March 7. 

We’ll clear the confusion about what makes the 2020 Caucus different — especially with Colorado being a new Super Tuesday state with its Presidential Primary just days before caucus (March 3. Ballots start mailing to you February 10!). We’ll cover why it’s so important to attend caucus, and how it becomes the groundgame for sending Cory back to Yuma!

YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT! Please join us…and please bring a friend! Wednesday, February 5, 6:30pm, Front Range Community College, 2121 Miller Drive, Classroom building (east side of Miller Drive), Community Room. (Go in door C4, go left past the cafeteria, the Community Room is right across from the bathrooms)

THANKS ALL THAT YOU DO!
