Use VoteBuilder to Check on Who Has Voted in Your Precinct

8th LD PCOs and Precinct Leaders:

It’s Election Day!  People voting today must use the ballot drop boxes, because a ballot placed in a mailbox today will not necessarily receive today’s postmark.  Ballot drop boxes close at 8:00 PM.
Benton Co. Elections and the State Party office have come through with all the “Early Voting” data we need.  When I logged into VoteBuilder this morning, I found that “Early Voting” data is now complete, right through yesterday’s returns!  (After Thursday, 121 of 313 votes were in in my precinct; now 184 are in!)
   * Compare your list of the Democratic and leaning Democratic voters in your precinct against a final VoteBuilder list of people who have not yet voted.  (Contact either me or your GOTV Coordinator if you want a final VB list.)
   * Contact everyone who has not voted and find out why.
   * If at all possible, enable them to vote!

The list of the 8th LDDO’s endorsements – which is especially useful today, when time is short! – is attached.  This can be a big help to people who want to vote and help our party, but don’t have time to study the Voter’s Pamphlet, which is 144 pages long.  Your constituents will appreciate knowing where their local Democratic Party organization stands on these five initiatives and ten offices.

Election Night Parties!  (I’ll be there shortly after the drop boxes close!)
As previously announced, there will be an election night party at the home of Misty Harris-Muchlinski, 2345 Carriage Avenue, Richland.  The party starts at 6:30 PM.  Please RSVP to events@bencodems.org.  BYOB.
There will also be a gathering at the Tapteal Apartments clubhouse at 1775 Columbia Park Trail, Richland. This party starts at 5:00 PM. Bring some food to share.

Let’s Get Out The Vote and win this election!
