OCDW August 2010 Meeting
WOMEN’S VOTES WIN ELECTIONS!
Our OCDW meeting on August 26th, starting at 7:30 in the OWASA meeting room on Jones Ferry Road in Carrboro, is the first of three OCDW-sponsored GOTV activities to turn Orange County a solid blue in the fall 2010 election. Please mark your calendars.
- The Women-to-Women Win Elections project is the August 26th meeting focus. At 7:30 pm on Thursday, August 26, at the OWASA meeting room on Jones Ferry Road in Carrboro, we’ll be writing letters to first-time 2008 Democratic women voters in Orange County to encourage them to vote again in 2010 – and the reasons why. The OCDP is providing lists of those voters, and we’re hoping that each of us can complete 10 letters during the meeting. We’ll have a prepared text on OCDW letterhead with space for you to include a personal note, or if you prefer to write a letter, we’ll have blank letterhead sheets, too. Copies of the early voting sites and schedules, pens, and envelopes and stamps will also be provided. Our goal is 500 ready-to-mail letters by 9pm. Please come and bring a friend or colleague with you. Fifty women. 500 letters. Yes, we can! Women’s Votes Win Elections!
- On Tuesday, September 28th, starting at 7:30pm, the OCDW will sponsor a Democratic candidates’ forum in the Chapel Hill Town Council meeting room in the municipal building on 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. next to the fire station. All Democratic candidates on the Orange County ballot will be invited. The forum is co-sponsored by the OCDP.
- Early Voting/One-Stop Voting Tabling will be sponsored by the OCDW at the three early voting sites: Morehead and Seymour Center in Chapel Hill, and the Orange County Board of Elections in Hillsborough. Ann DeMaine is the OCDW tabling coordinator. Susan Romaine will manage and coordinate the Seymour Center site, and Missy Biggers and Lynne Kane will manage and coordinate Morehead tabling. Coordinators and tabling volunteers for Hillsborough are being recruited – if you’re interested, please let Ann know (She is out of town until mid-September, but she can be e-mailed: firstname.lastname@example.org
HOPE TO SEE YOU AT OWASA ON THURSDAY, AUGUST 26!
