At 6 pm our Chair, Juanita Thorne, will convene the meeting via Zoom. We have so much to discuss and so many updates to share with the members and friends of the Prince George Democratic Committee.
June 23 Democratic Primary:
We have two members on the Prince George Board of Elections, Denya Hankerson and Dr. Lillian Boyd. On July 23rd there was actually a Republican Primary as well. All 10 precincts and the Central Absentee Precinct were open and staffed. Safety measures, including social distancing protocols, and hand hygiene were instituted. So it was a very busy day for our two electoral Board Members. We may here more about how the election went. This is good preparation for voting procedures in the General Election in November.
4th Congressional District (CD):
Congressman A. Donald McEachin won the June 23rd Democratic Primary with over 80% of the vote district wide. He will be challenged by Republican in November.
We must say a word of appreciation and encouragement to Cazel Levine, who challenged Congressman McEachin in the primary. We hope she keeps her Democratic fervor active. Democrats are needed at all levels of government and in many advocacy areas.
Senator Mark Warner up for Reelection:
Yes, Senator Warner has a Republican challenger in the November election. You will never see Republican opponent names mention here. He was quoted in the Tuesday Times-Dispatch referring to “…Mark Warner’s do-nothing career …” so let’s send this Republican packing in November.
Let’s elect Joseph “Joe” Biden:
Isn’t it time to end the nightmare that began for our country in 2016. Registering new voters, educating voters, encouraging early voting, volunteering (socially distancing of course), and donating all matter if we want to get rid of the evil-doer currently in the White House.
New voting opportunities:
On July 1 legislation goes into effect providing for no excuse absentee voting. The window for absentee voting will essentially allow Virginia voters to vote early, either by absentee in-person or by mail-in absentee ballot. We don’t know what the corona virus has in store for us. So let’s make voting early a priority for all Democrats.
