Note from the President (NEW)
Dear friends,
Please remember that the Democratic Club’s September meeting will take place on Monday, September 13 at 7 PM via Zoom. You have until this evening to respond if you are attending. The only way to receive the Zoom link to the meeting is to contact Mark Wilson at wilsoncpu@gmail.com and let him know you will be coming. I apologize for this extra step, but it is a way for us to try and keep our Zoom meetings secure.
This will be a business meeting only – no guest speaker – and we will be providing updates on some recent Club activities and give the results of the Survey that we asked you to fill out. We encourage discussion from the attendees on the results of the Survey, so please do attend if you can. Meeting length will be one hour.
At this point – with COVID numbers rising in Carroll County and the unknown impact of schools reopening – there is no way to know when we can safely return to in-person meetings. We will keep you updated.
Take care everyone and stay well,
Kate Sanner, President of the CC Democratic Club

Postcards to Voters (PTV)
If you would like to get involved in getting Democrats elected but can’t see yourself doing phone-baking or door-to-door canvassing, then postcard writing may be for you. Writing postcards to voters is one of the best ways to reach out to voters around the country about their local elections or to sign up for vote by mail. There are elections going on right now (with many more to come next year) and you can be part of getting Democrats elected by writing friendly, handwritten postcards. As a volunteer postcard writer, you will provide the postcards, stamps, and time, PTV will provide what to write, thorough instructions, and addresses of voters.
To learn more about becoming an authorized writer, go to www.postcardstovoters.org.
