Everything You Need to Vote Your WHOLE Ballot!

bocovoter.org is the official website of the 2020 Boulder County Democratic Party (BCDP). It might be familiar to you, since the printed BCDP Voter Guide has been dropped at doors since 2008, but the website is even more in depth, explaining the rationale behind the BCDPs ballot recommendations, just as one example. You’ll also find candidate bios, links to ballot drop locations, “downloadables”, and more. The bocovoter.org website it updated regularly, and is also in Spanish.

FROM THE BOCOVOTER.ORG WEBSITE:

ELECTION DAY is Tuesday, Nov. 3…
BUT WE STRONGLY SUGGEST as soon as you receive your ballot, use this guide to vote your ballot completely, SEAL & SIGN the envelope and DROP your ballot in one of the many, convenient BALLOT DROP BOXES near you. (If you must mail your ballot, please DO SO EARLY!) We want landslide turnout! PLAN ON the national vote count to take longer, and run past election night — in order for complete and accurate results to be counted!

AND IN CASE THIS ISN’T ENCOURAGEMENT
ENOUGH, LISTEN TO SAMUEL:

AND FOR INSPIRATION, THE LOVE:

MORE INSPIRATION:

Next LAD Meeting: All About Your 2020 Ballot, Part 2!

THIS Wednesday, October 7 • 6:30pm
(We’ll send you the zoom link Wednesday morning!)
An insufferable debate (Joe felt like we ALL did) — and now karma (or the Divine Ms. Ruth) has visited trump (or, HAS it?). MORE THAN EVER, you’re anxious to VOTE. Ballots start mailing to Boulder County voters on Oct. 9. But you DON’T want to miss this meeting! Joe and Kamala will need the support of a full democracy arsenal at the federal, state, county and local level!

This Wednesday is mostly CRITICAL BALLOT ISSUES (ELEVEN on your ballot — at least 2 of them will make you MAD), but inspiring CANDIDATES, too! So you can place a face, and a vision for Colorado — with the vote you cast!

NINETY people attended our last Ballot Overview meeting. We’ll briefly go over what you might have missed, but PLEASE DON’T MISS Wednesday’s Part 2!

Be IN THE KNOW about your WHOLE BALLOT so you can be an informed neighbor, friend or family member!

JOIN US…and please tell a friend: THIS Wednesday, October, 6:30pm — we’ll send you a zoom link Wednesday morning! Stay tuned!

ATTENTION PRECINCT LEADERS: If you haven’t done so already, sign up for the next phase of GOTV training for TOMORROW morning, SATURDAY, Oct. 3, 10am — via Zoom. Space is limited! REGISTER here.
 

THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!

Yard signs…

LOTS OF REQUESTS FOR BIDEN YARD SIGNS...In normal election years, the Coordinated Campaign would have a physical office in town — those are the folks from the DNC, usually from out of state, who rent an office space in town in partnership with the Boulder County Democratic Party.

Obviously, due to Covid19, that’s not happening this year. So if you are anxious for a Biden sign, your best bet is to order it from joebiden.com — $25/per sign, and the money goes DIRECTLY to Joe’s campaign. (They have “Biden” and “Biden Harris” signs available.)

Next LAD Meeting: All About Your 2020 Ballot, Part 1!

Wednesday, September 2  6:30pm
(We’ll send you the zoom link Wednesday morning!)
We get it. You’re anxious to VOTE. But how about using this time to really get to know your ballot? Then share what you learn with others? Besides, Joe and Kamala will need the support of a full democracy arsenal at the federal, state, county and local level!

You will hear from almost ALL of the candidates on your ballot — we’ve invited everyone. A chance to hear from all of your potential representatives — so you can place a face, and a vision for Colorado — with the vote you cast!

Your 2020 Ballot will be packed with important ballot issues as well — it is critical that you VOTE YOUR WHOLE BALLOT! After all, when you leave even one part of your ballot blank, you allow others to choose for you.

BOTH our September and October meetings will be devoted to your ballot (did we mention it was packed?), so YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS EITHER MEETING!

Be IN THE KNOW about your WHOLE BALLOT!

JOIN US…and please tell a friend: Wednesday, September 2, 6:30pm — we’ll send you a zoom link Wednesday morning! Stay tuned!
 

THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
