NCDP precinct organizing underway
by Betsy Muse 2/19/2015
...Over the next few weeks, precincts will be organizing, meeting and electing new officers. It is not too late to get in on the action. OK, I know, it really isn't that big of a deal, right? Wrong.
It can be a very big deal, especially if you are a precinct involved in replacing an elected official who leaves office before their term is up [hint: see Senator Jeff Jackson, below, and here]...
Being involved at the precinct level is also a big deal if you are part of an active precinct that works together to get out the vote... If your precinct is already organized, all you have to do is show up. You do not have to volunteer to do anything right away... If your precinct is not organized, consider volunteering to lead that effort. Initially, it only takes five registered Democrats attending a precinct meeting along with an election of officers to organize a precinct. Only five people. How hard can it be?
Organized precincts are the key to winning elections, so whether you are attending an existing meeting or trying to organize your own precinct, the effort is well worth your time. read article
