It’s been a long 6 months.  Our volunteers have come forward and our headquarters open since October 28, 2017.  We have been working earnestly with candidates and their supporters. Volunteering in this effort has been part of our operation and we know that more volunteers will step forward to building our party.  More than 4,000 hours of volunteerism, along with 150 volunteers stepping forward to help is a measure of good success.

Phone banking and canvassing is the heart of the turnout of our Democracy.  We have been reaching out, and targeting groups of people who did not vote in the 2016 elections.  Mid-term elections have always been “mediocre” with turnout.  

With the current GOP Administration, people are aware that staying home on election day isn’t a good thing.  Getting rid of Congressman Tom McClintock has been the catalyst driving our volunteers into targeted methods of grassroots support.  Reports are showing a steady support of removing him from office.

​Let’s not forget the down ballot races.  Supporting candidates at local and State positions is an important part of building a more progressive and tolerant government.  The El Dorado County Democratic Party has candidates we are supporting in this election.  Please go to the “Let’s Vote” page and check out our candidates. 

We are in the last 3 days of our campaigning.  We will take a rest for a month or so.  Summer is upon us, but we need to make sure our volunteers don’t burn out.  The El Dorado Democratic Party campaign organizers will debrief after this Primary.  We will be reviewing the results to see what targets did not work, and what method that we did use can be better enhanced.  Don’t go away.  Follow us.  Join us.  Volunteer.  This November, we want to flip congress, but we can’t do it without you, the Democrats and No Party Preference people, because as allies, we can take our Country back.
