News from MontcoPA:

MontcoPA New Voting System Demo, October 5, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Montco PA will have an Open House of their new #MontcoPA voter verified paper ballot Voting System!

Residents will have the opportunity to test out the new voting system, which is also ADA compliant, in College Hall on the Central Campus of the Montgomery County Community College, 340 Morris Road, Blue Bell, PA 19422

More information on the new voting system can be found at https://www.montcopa.org/votingsystem

Click here to register for the October 5 event

Montgomery County Voter Services will set up five simulated polling locations for voters to experience the new system first-hand.

The new system replaces the electronic push-button voting machines the County purchased in 1996 that were at the end of their useful life. The old machines also did not meet the state mandate for counties to have a voting system with a verifiable paper trail in place for the 2020 Presidential election.

With the new system, most voters will use a pen to fill out a ballot and have an opportunity to check it for accuracy before submitting it to a scanner that tabulate the votes and keep the ballot in a secure container for audits or recounts.

Each polling place will also have an ADA touchscreen machine that can be used to select candidates. When the voter is done filling out the ballot, they can review their selections and print out a paper ballot that will be submitted to a scanner for tabulation the same as the ballots filled out by hand.

You've heard this before: Local elections are won in the summer!

But the results from the May primary show that door-to-door canvassing is the most effective way to get people to the polls. Data from the the primary show a double-digit increase in turnout from registered Democrats who were canvassed compared to similar Democrats who were not. It also didn’t matter if they were canvassed early or late in the campaign. That’s why we are canvassing over the summer and can use your help. Now that the weather is moderating, make a plan to canvass at least once between now and Labor Day. We will have experienced canvassers there to go out with you, so if you haven't canvassed before, no worries. It is also a great way to introduce your children (or grandchildren) to grass roots democracy. And, stay tuned for a big canvassing event after Labor Day.”

We are canvassing twice each week. Grab a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle and join us!

Weekends:

Pick up walk sheets between 10 and 11 AM on Saturdays at The Barn at 524 Cedar Hill Rd., Ambler 19002.

Wednesday afternoons 4-6 PM: 

Meet at Council candidate Lisa Cellini’s house

All About the 2019 Sample Primary Ballot

All About the 2019 Primary Sample Ballot

Montgomery County recently announced the implementation of new voting machines which will be used for the Primary Election on May 21st. These new voting machines use paper ballots which are are hand marked and then machine scanned. This allows for fast tallying of results while providing a paper trail that can be used in a manual recount to ensure the validity of the election results. Voters can view instructional videos about the new system here: https://www.montcopa.org/3235/New-Voting-System-Instructional-Videos

Because there is a new voting machine system in place, the sample ballots do not look like they have in the past. There are no longer button numbers to refer to. Combined with the practice of cross filing for offices like School Board Director, this makes it difficult for us to easily indicate to voters who the endorsed Democratic candidates are.

To address this potential confusion we have prepared the graphic below. It is based on a sample ballot provided by Montgomery County Voter Services and shows what you will see when you enter the voting booth on May 21st. We have augmented this sample ballot by highlighting in blue the endorsed Democratic candidates. You will NOT see the blue highlighting on May 21st: we are showing it here to help you understand which candidates have been endorsed.  To vote for an endorsed candidate you will be instructed to fill in the round dot next to the name of the candidate. We have shown in this sample which dots to fill in to properly place your votes for the endorsed Democratic ticket.

 

 

 


We're Going Door to Door This Weekend: Will You Join Us?

The gathering place this and every Saturday is Peggy Leiby's barn at 524 Cedar Hill Road. We will provide current Walk Sheets, Clipboards, and Palm Cards, and any training required if you have not done this sort of thing before. We will meet at 10am to pick up materials, which may be returned at any time during the weekend to the provided drop-box.

Nothing is as effective as door to door outreach. As little as an hour can make a big difference in a Primary vote total.

Will you help us make a difference by telling Primary voters about our candidates on Saturday?


Will YOU Display a Lawn Sign?

Lawn signs are an easy way to signify support for Democratic candidates and help us raise awareness of who they are. By displaying a sign you also remind people of the upcoming election. Turnout matters for us as we tend to elect more candidates when turnout is higher. 

Please help us raise awareness of Democratic candidates by placing signs for Democratic candidates on your property today.

Request a sign by clicking below and filling out the request form.
Your signs will be delivered to your home: you won't have to do a thing.

 

 

 


Can You Volunteer on Election Day May 21st?

Looking at the sample ballot above, you can see it will be very easy for voters to mark ballots for Republican candidates who have cross-filed onto the Democratic ballot. They will have no indication they are doing so, and for an uninformed voter, the ballot will be very confusing. 

To address this concern, at every Polling place, during Election day, we ask people to serve as 'Greeters'. What does a greeter do? Just what it sounds like: Greet voters, answer any questions they may have, and ensure they know who the endorsed Democratic candidates are who they should vote for.

There are 14 polling places in Horsham, and they are open from 7am -8PM. Covering that many places for that long is difficult. Typically we divide the day up into shifts and ask people to volunteer for one or more time slots, during times of day that work with their individual schedules. 

Peggy Leiby is finalizing the schedule for election day and volunteers are still needed! Please call Peggy today at 215 643-4397 and volunteer for this important role.

Will YOU Display a Lawn Sign?

We get it, you are mad, and no-one is doing anything about it. Steny Hoyer is even saying 'Don't Impeach', what's up with that? 

If you want elected's to do their job, you need to do yours. if you will not stand up and say "I'm a Democrat and I've had enough!", why should Democratic leadership listen to you? and NOTHING CHANGES.

Many people in Horsham are frightened to display a Democratic Party lawn sign: what would the neighbors think? Maybe my garbage will not get picked up. Bad things might happen.

Well guess what?  There are more of us than you might think, but nobody knows that because everyone is waiting for someone else to make the first move. Your garbage will still get picked up, and nothing bad will happen because you put a sign on your lawn. Not putting a sign out, on the other hand, makes it seem like there is nothing to oppose the bad things happening elsewhere. 

It is time to represent. Be a leader: click the link, request your signs, and voice your anger by supporting the candidates we can elect today, so we are stronger in the campaigns to come.

Request a sign by clicking below and filling out the request form.
We will contact you and arrange for a time for your sign(s) to be delivered to your home.

To schedule volunteers to perform this important task, there is a signup genius (of course there is :-)). Please go there now and sign up for a shift as a volunteer greeter and hep us ensure that voters know who to vote for on Primary Day! 

 


None of This is Free. Can you Help Us Pay For Our Defence of Democracy?

Palm Cards, Signs, Web Sites, Candidate Videos. All of this costs $. We're not spending like drunken sailors, but money is going out the door and there is always another expense.

Elections are costly and even a small contribution can make a big difference.

Please make a donation today to support our candidates and our efforts to elect them.
