Schedule for Horsham Democratic Committee Meetings

Keynote speaker for the October 16th Meeting:

Covitz Ph.D. A.B.P.P. is a contributor to the bestselling book "The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President" (Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Dangerous-Case-Donald-Trump-Psychiatrists-ebook/dp/B07262SJDC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1533522789&sr=1-1).

Donate to the Horsham Democratic Committee

Donations are welcome via our website at https://horshamdems.nationbuilder.com/donate. Money donated now will be used to help elect Democratic Candidates in the elections this fall, and in the Township and School Board elections in 2019. 


 

Poll Greeters Needed

On Election Day when people go their polls to vote, they may need help or have questions about where to go or who the Democratic candidates are they should vote for. To help these voters the Horsham Democratic Committee organizes Poll Greeters who welcome voters at the polling locations and make sure any questions they have are answered. 

This is where you come in: we need people to perform this important task. A polling shift can be as short as one hour, and any amount of time spent on this activity is an investment in our democracy. This is a kid-friendly activity, and young people are encouraged to participate in this role.

If you have an hour or more on Election day, and care enough about the outcome of the election to help people at the polls, please call Caryn Leifer at (609) 519-8255.

 

Canvassing for the Environment a BIG SUCCESS

It was a full house on Sunday morning as Democrats came to canvass with Maria and Sara with backing from the League of Conservation Voters. As we get closer to Election day the numbers of people coming to help out continue to grow.
