News and Recent Activities

Delegates Wanted!

The Washtenaw County Democratic Party (WCDP) is looking for a few good delegates. This is an elected position that helps organize and mobilize Democrats at the precinct level and will elect the County Executive Board after the election. Even though the deadline has passed to be listed on the August 2, 2106 Primary, you may still be a write-in candidate.

To be a precinct delegate, you must be a registered voter in the precinct you live in. You can then register no later than 4PM on July 29th with your City or Township Clerk (NOT the County Clerk) by downloading and printing the write-in candidate form at http://www.michigan.gov/documents/Dec-Int-Write-In_94360_7.pdf  Read it carefully and fill it out but don’t sign it until you can find a notatary public to witness your signature. (Usually your local clerk’s office will have a notary).
Once you have filled the form in, signed it and had it notarized, submit it to your local clerk. On election day you and your friends can vote for you as a write-in candidate using the exact name you put on the form. In other words if you wrote Jane Elizabeth Doe on the write-in application, you or anyone else would have to write Jane Elizabeth Doe for the vote to count, Jane Doe would not work.
For any questions, please contact Bill Worzel at billwzel@gmail.com or Catherine Daligaa at cdaligga@gmail.com
Don’t be left out when The Donald comes to town! Help send him back where he came from and while we’re at it, let’s take back Lansing!
