We kicked off our Fall/Winter 2019/2020 Strategy at our Monthly Action Meeting on September 14. The goals are to register new Democratic voters and reach out to unaffiliated and infrequent voters during this time. We’ll win in 2020 by registering and motivating new voters.
Our County Party leadership is committed to reaching out to every corner of Coconino County, especially in those areas where we know we can improve Democratic voter turnout. September is Voter Registration Month for us. (We’ll have more such months between now and November 3, 2020.) In addition to new voter registration, we’ll reach out to unaffiliated and infrequent voters to inform them about the upcoming Presidential Preference Election on March 17 and to talk with them about the importance of the 2020 General Election on November 3.
Join the Democratic Team — Get to Work!
Our trainers will continue our weekly Tuesday Volunteer/PC Orientations. If you are just getting started, please attend one of these! Although the training sessions are always on Tuesday, sometimes they are mid-day and sometimes in the early evening. Check our calendar. RSVP required! If Tuesday is impossible for you, contact us — we’ll make it work.
If you are a Precinct Committee Person or Volunteer, now is the time to redouble your efforts. Contact your Regional Captain (or respond to their outreach) and get to work in your neighborhoods, join one of our weekly group canvasses, or come in for a phone bank. Our website calendar is the key to events outside of your region.
We’ll be targeting likely Democratic voters by canvassing students on and off-campus and in other targeted precincts. Our twelve interns will be spearheading this work and making it easy for the rest of us to jump into a group canvass as we have time. Every Friday from now through December 6th, we’ll have at least one canvass organized by the interns — often two. Check our calendar for locations and times and join a canvassing event!
We’ll be reaching out to newly registered Democrats to urge them to become party activists and to let them know we are here for them. This is one of the things we’ll be doing at our regular Tuesday phone-banks — come join us! Again, check the calendar for details.
Throughout the Fall and Winter, we’ll continue to strengthen our presence on the Navajo Nation through our Tuba City Democrats group, led by our local organizer Deydrek Scott, and by other means. The Tuba City group is meeting monthly. Check out our Tuba City Democrats Facebook Page. On September 28, we’re hosting an Indigenous PC Training at Twin Arrows, which is co-sponsored by Navajo and Apache counties and spearheaded by ADP Vice President Missa Foy along with our County Chair Shannah Redmon.
We’ve just brought on a Latinx organizer, Dennis Chavez, who will be working to connect us to the Flagstaff Latinx Community. If you’d like to be involved in this, please contact Dennis at 928-221-1008.
Our Regional Captains are organizing work in the precincts they are responsible for, including neighborhood canvasses and other activities. Our PC Coordinators have just loaded a powerful new script to accomplish our canvassing goals for this season.
Our West Rural Regional activists have brought that area to life for Democrats in a way it hasn’t been in years. Last night, 30-40 local Democrats turned our for a meeting in Williams and another is scheduled for the Grand Canyon area soon.
The importance of the Election on November 3, 2020, cannot be overstated. In the history of the country, it ranks with the elections of 1860 and 1932. Join us — this is not a red/blue team event — it’s an all-hands-on-deck for America event.
